By this time in a year, we always have ume flowers come out in our garden. They are still buds now like the photo shows. The sunray is already pretty bright and the daytime is elongated much more than in mid winter. The cold snap still remains here. It is always freezing early in the morning. There is some snow left on the shaded area.
Believing in the saying that once cold winter comes here, it won't be too long before warm spring follows, I would like to look forward having spring arriving here soon. We will have that day of March 11th in a few weeks.
