Plum Blossoms at Kitano Tenman-gu Shrine 2012

 I just love the colours of these plum blossoms.
 Some were almost white, but my eye kept catching the 'plummy' ones.
 Plum-viewing at Kitano is a yearly event in Kyoto. Inspiring.
 We were there in early March 2012.

 Our 'ticket' included plum tea and biscuit to enjoy while viewing.
There are many famous and beautiful images and haiku of plum blossoms, but I wrote my own:

Spring snow dusts the path
Swept away before it melts
Plum blossoms drifting.
