Welcome to our 172nd week of Travel Photo Thursday. Last week I told you that spring had arrived in Korea. Well, Mother Nature is being fickle. This week the temperatures have taken a dive in the morning and evening. Of course, the afternoons are toasty warm, so impossible to know what to wear on the morning commute to work. However, that hasn’t stopped the cherry blossoms and magnolias from gracing us with their beauty. I wandered with my camera last weekend, and got some nice shots for Travel Photo Thursday.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog.
Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Along the river…
The deep pink blossoms are not that common in Daejeon…
Looking gorgeous against the blue sky…
Many of the blossoms were starting to fall…
Cherry blossoms are not the only blossoms spreading their beauty in Korea. There’s the magnolia, which peaks before the cherry blossoms…
Lilacs, my favorite, are not that common in Korea. However, I saw quite a few small trees on Saturday. Give it a couple more years and the smell lilac will be wafting through the spring air.
And, the city will soon be blanketed in azalea’s, my all time favorite!
You’re probably wondering, when is the best time to see the cherryy blossoms in Korea? Well, that used to be very easy to predict. However, like most of the world, Korea’s weather has changed. This year we started seeing blossoms in mid March, and news sources say that they peaked last Saturday, April 6th (a full week earlier than usual, or so the Korean Herald tells us.)
I would say, (to be on the safe side), that you should be here by the last week in March. Of course, you can always start googling for predictions next February! 🙂
