In continuing with my obsession with cherry blossom season, I decided to go check out the Spring Flower Festival in Yeouido. Yeouido is an area located in the bustling city of Seoul, South Korea. It’s also an island! For all the years I had been living here I didn’t even know. However the -do part should have given it away as it mean Island in Korean.
Spring time in Asia does not last to long, and it’s best time is only between 2 or 3 weeks long. This is when the cherry blossoms bloom. I’m obsessed with these flowers, and make an effort to catch them in new places and countries when I have the opportunity.
I’ve always seen such pretty pics with the Eiffel Tower in Paris amidst cherry blossoms! Since living in Asia, I have fallen in love with Spring and the blooming of the cherry blossoms every year.
Cherry blossoms are not native to Europe, so these carefully planted trees around Paris’ famous landmarks are a treasure to behold after a dull and dreary Winter. You can find them all over the city in parks and other popular places. So one warm sunny Spring day in Paris, I took a study break and headed off to the Eiffel Tower with my camera to capture these short-lived blossoms in bloom!
