on a walk (or two)

IMG_4947 One sunny day, I went walking to check out the robai (waxy apricot) forest.

There was some in bloom which was nice.

There were at least 30 people in their group, mostly seniors.

No one noticed I joined their group for a part of their walk...

Turns out it was this huge cat!

Spring is coming but ever so slowly...what have you been seeing on your walks?

p.s. tomorrow is Setsubun, if you are eating E-homaki tomorrow the direction to face is East-North-East.

No blooms in sight yet but everyone's saying that this year, winter isn't as cold as it used to be. 5°C outside right now and that isn't so bad.
