Spring in Taebaek, at last

20 04 2009

Eventually here in out little mountain town, spring has struck. The flowers are out and blooming everywhere, with an amazing display of whites, pinks, yellows and purples. Strange but I don’t recall it being so beautiful last year, however maybe I just didn’t pay as much attention.

Either way, its stunning.
