A few months ago I wrote about fall, my second favorite season in Korea, but now winter is over (thank God) and it is time to talk about spring!! Spring is, without question, my favorite season in Korea. I won't lie, Korean winters are pretty much the worst - think grey, with extra grey, and a side of dark grey. Also, extremely cold.
When I lived in Colorado I was also not a huge fan of winter (I'm just not a cold weather person), but at least in Colorado it is still sunny with blue skies most days, and when it snows it's really quite stunning. Korean winter just doesn't really have an upside...
This being said, Korean spring is amazing! The air is usually crisp but not cold, the sun is out more often than not, and my personal favorite, all the flowers start to bloom.
The first flowers of the season are some of my favorite: Cherry Blossoms. As soon as it started to warm up, thousands of these delicate white flowers began bursting forth to signal to coming of Spring - such a welcome sight!
This last weekend, two of my friends and I donned our spring-time skirts and scarves, grabbed our cameras, and headed to one of the big universities in Daejeon to try and snap some pictures before these beautiful blossoms float away.
One day I would love to see the Sakura Cherry Blossoms in Japan, but for the time being I am more than happy with the beautiful blossom views in Korea :) What is your favorite spring flower? Post a picture on IG and tag me (@abeautifulview0), or post one to my Facebook and I will share my favorites. I love spring!!! Anyways..
Enjoy the beautiful view!
