Corner View - Spring

This weeks Corner View is all about spring.

The clocks changed in the UK this weekend heralding the start of British Summer Time and for the last 2 days many parts of Scotland have had snow.......wind......rain.....snow......I am not sure that we are ready for spring yet. Usually the daffodils are out and blossom beginning to appear on trees by now but not this year. However, some delightful signs of spring were evident when I was away in the Yorkshire Dales this past weekend:


Last spring I was in Japan....the most famous sign of spring being the cherry blossom (sakura)....it was beautiful...




Cherry blossoms and hanami parties in Shinjuku-Gyoen Park, Toyko

I am off to check out spring elsewhere on Corner View....
