The Internet could go into melt down over the coming weeks as spring begins to sweep its way across the Northern Hemisphere.

As one of the many who go in hunt of those delicate little flowers that herald the transition from the slumber and thoughtfulness of winter to the hope of new beginnings that spring has to offer, I found myself out early with camera in tow this morning, hoping for more luck than my earlier outing this week to find new life in the dormant surroundings of Ulsan. 144 more words

An Ode to Spring

“Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.”
