Spring at Bell Forest Park






Rain fell on Friday and was worried that the blossoms went along but it stayed and was as beautiful as I imagined.





It was the birthday of our big man but unfortunately he was at work so me and son spent our Saturday afternoon seeing the blossoms (late afternoon was the celebration so we have to spend few hours there). The place was very near to us and very convenient to drive and to spend lazy walks and also a play haven for kids. People with picnic bags and mats were already enjoying the cherry blossoms and laying there chitchatting with their friends and families.

a lovely afternoon like this is a blessing

parents relaxing while kids are having fun


they are having the grandest time with the blossoms


The other side of the street is kinda inviting so we went and took a series of shots. Son on his bicycle, me on my feet with my camera. This is how we bond, mother and son precious time on the record plus the sakura !


blossom parade



On the riverside, one family took time to have barbeque under the cherry trees, caught a very lovely pic with them laughing. Life is good! Praise God!



smiles..captured!

Amazing sharing Ann I am impressed! Professionally I am a tourist and visited a lot of beautiful and attractive places around the world. Japan is one of my favorite tourist destinations in the world. I have been there few months ago before my new york to niagara falls with my brother. I like this region due to its rich history. Golden Pavilion is one of my favorite sight there. It was originally built as a retirement villa for Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu in the late 14th century.

You have been to Kyoto also! Yes, Golden Pavilion(Kinkakuji) is one of the famous tourist spots here. We plan to go again and I will be posting about it too here.
