Slowly... Spring.


It's been a slow to arrive Spring. The nice weather, with its scenery...



...and the opportunity to enjoy the cherry trees...



...just isn't as enjoyable when it's grey, gloomy, and cold!



Ok. So it's all relative. To some, it's already Summer! Yeah!! ...Um, No.



The cherry trees behind the Planetarium are at their peak, the tourists are all out and about, but the sun could be a bit brighter... Please?



There were gaps in the "non-nice weather", but simply not enough of them!



But when they did occur, I would skip out of work early, tell the boss to look after things, and get some pictures! ...hey. ...you're retired...



The magnolia trees just couldn't stand to miss out! They weren't going to let the cherries have all the attention...



I still find them an awkward looking flower. Colourful, but ungainly.
