awaiting spring

strolling (what would become) a favorite street in kyoto, japan

a peaceful perfect green garden in kamakura, japan

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

I love your beautiful pictures, and I especially like Bradstreet quote. To every thing there is a season, and thank goodness we have them otherwise I would go crazy!

These are gorgeous very spring-y pics. Green is just delighting me these days, and the green in these pics is perfect!

I traveled around Japan last May, and the greenery was exactly like your pictures. Thank you for the reminder.

i have spent much time in Japan and oh how i miss it so now. i took much of it for granted and now i miss her beauty, her culture and her ways.
the fotos are lovely. they capture the beautiful soul of Japan.

if we did not suffer 4 long months of frigid winter, we would not appreciate the hope and light of Spring. That's what I keep telling myself.
