Plum Blossoms

Just taking a little break from the transportation system =D. I've been having headaches for sometime now...I guess it has to do with the weather and the rain that poured suddenly or the medicine I took that got me complications or the many stuff in my head that confuses themselves which one I should think of first...

I'm just glad that I get to see beautiful flowers around that makes me at ease, somehow. The plum flowers (ume) look almost the same as cherry blossoms (sakura, my fave flower)...In Japanese culture, they play much during weddings and other occasions. It is about this time of the year too that they celebrate the Plum Blossom Festival.

Below is the actual size of a plum blossom.

  5. Re: your comment, well of course the University students see the world from a different plane ... that's why they call it "higher education". -:)

    I think I like plum blossoms better than cherry. These seem to have a more robust color and shape.

    I trust your headache abates soon.

  6. Lol Chuck! Hope each student think that way so they go further up than flank!

  7. Happy to see those plum blossoms in Vienna. The ones we have here in Victoria must be a different variety since their leaves are alway russet and never turn green.

    I hope you'll get better soon.
