White Blossoms


These plum blossoms were in full bloom a few weeks ago.

Plum blossoms are called "Ume (Ooh-meh)" and they are loved by many Japanese as they signal the start of spring.

Don't they look lovely against the sky?


Enjoy looking at more beautiful skies all around the world here.

  1. Ooo. Nice. I like the contrast between the cobalt sky, the black branches and the white blossoms. :)

  4. These are so pretty. Did they come into bloom early (as everything in NA seems to be doing)?

    1. They are actually late this year. We (as opposed to many other places) actually had a very cold winter! :)
