Spring Blossoms

They say that springtime is the most beautiful season and we agree (who doesn't, anyway). Well, let's start off with something closer to home first.

Recently, mummy discovered a small but beautiful garden right inside our apartment compound... and this was after staying here for nearly 2 months! The apartment compound is vast (with close to 30 residential blocks!) and the garden is just a few blocks away from ours.

I guess it's not too late to discover this place because the meteorological spring has only just begun. In China, there are 2 springs... calendar spring (Lunar CNY) and meteorological spring (defined by average temperatures within a specific period). The warmer climate (although it still feels like winter to us) is starting to bring some colours back into the landscapes...

Pink and white blooms stand out among the greens


Pretty blossoms from around the garden


A flower as big as my palm


The lush greenery in our apartment compound


There are some exercise equipments here too... mummy and I make it a point to do some light exercises before returning home every day (after picking me up from my schoolbus pick up point at the apartment entrance)


A pink cherry blossom-like tree right at our doorstep


Cute buds blossoming into pink beauties


At the neighbourhood park just across the street, beautiful flowers are springing alive too

I love this park very much and I can come here everyday without getting bored...


Whenever it is sunny (and with temp above 10C) mummy will bring me here for a walk after school, especially on Fridays when I don't have to rush home to do my homework :)
