Blossom Fever

I have a huge obsession for cherry blossoms. Whenever I see a cherry tree, I’d stop to ogle at its beauty and start snapping photos like crazy. These past few weeks, I’ve been wanting to take more pictures of the blossoms but the cloudy weather has made that impossible.

Today, I was in luck. The weather was absolutely perfect for a spring day adventure. Right after lunch, I dragged everyone to Hagley Park to experience the beauty of the blossoms. Although hubby wasn’t keen at first, I could tell that he was in awe with the sight of the white Sakura trees. The kids enjoyed themselves too.






With my dad :)





Although I don’t have any photography skills whatsoever, I kept taking photos of the blossom whenever I had the chance to. It is so addictive. These are my top 3 shots of the Sakura.








I won’t be here next spring so I’m trying to soak up as much of it as I can :)
