Progress of Ume apricot

This post is part of Floral Friday Fotos.

Today snow was falling in the afternoon and the weather forecast says tomorrow will be the last peak of coldness this winter and we'll have snow tomorrow too.
This winter  is unusual.

I went to Osaka Castle Ume apricot garden two days ago to see the progress of blooming. Most trees were still waiting to bloom, but I could see the earliest ume starting to bloom in the rain.

I'm sure the view of the castle through flowers would be wonderful in a week or so. I hope to come back again. We can enjoy this apricot garden through March.

This tree was the most appealing to me with the sweet scent.
