Is it spring already?

Chinese Sakura Tree

I've always loved the changing of the seasons. It always seemed like just when I couldn't stand another rainy day (I grew up in Oregon), spring would burst forth in all it's glory!

We just returned from few days in the village and as we drove into Mae Salong, we were amazed to see that in the three weeks since we've been away, the whole mountain has sprouted pink blossoms. Enormous Chinese Sakura trees line the roads and infiltrate the forests with the beauty of spring. It does feel like winter was a little short, but who am I to complain? Spring was always my favorite season!
