I so love spring. The feeling of the days getting longer… Seedlings piercing the ground…. The milder temperatures….. The sound of birds calling for a mate…… The sun gently stirring sleeping world.
I want to get out. To explore. To potter on my patch of earth. To marvel at the beauty around us.
To this end- I’m starting this series. Every Monday for the next 6 weeks, I am going to post my moments as I ‘Spring into Spring’. They will mainly be of explorations of the Japanese Spring, that I will do with my family, but there might be others- who knows where the spring will take us. If you want to join in- please share a link to your blog. Enjoy as we ‘Spring into Spring’
Fuji 5 Lakes Area
The cherry blossoms have been out in full force the week, and I honestly thought as we packed to head out to the Fuji 5 Lakes region for the Easter Weekend that we would have a fantastic show… Well was I surprised!
Spring is only just starting in the 5 Lakes region. In fact, a cold spell hit Japan for the weekend, making it grey and drizzly, with temperatures being 5-6 degrees C at lunchtime causing us to wonder whether we were in Blighty or Japan.
I hope that you had a blessed Easter and have seen the growing signs of spring around you.
