Japanese plum aka 'ume'...

It snowed yesterday... 
Was chopping firewood when the snow came in... 
Took time off from wood-chopping to smell the flowers...
And in the midst of winter, it is but the Japanese plum or ume... 
This was taken in the early evening when the sun was still quite high...
Experimented with artificial lighting indoors with this shot...
Back to the snow... took this shot of the fields the next morning...
The snow had melted quite a bit...
We are lucky to have the privilege to enjoy such scenes a few times in a year...
(PS: Just came back from an overseas trip to Chiang Mai...)
