Japan and it’s Sakura Festival always comes to mind as the most impressive destination for blossoms. It’s not guaranteed that you will see blossoms if you go in spring, unless you go for the entire spring season! These beautiful blooms last for such a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment! One downpour can wipe them clean away.
For a few weeks now, I’ve been saying to hubby that we should head to our local park to do a photo shoot amongst the blossom trees. There’s a handful of them which were in full bloom along our running track. Just as quickly as they appeared, they vanished. Oh well, there’s always next year.
Thank goodness for social media! We’ve lived in our area for six years now and are always discovering new places. Someone posted a gorgeous photo of masses of blossom trees on Facebook and luckily for us, it was only 10 minutes up the road! The local magazine cover also featured the same blossom trees. The decision was made to head out the next morning to capture these fragile beauties so that we can enjoy them eternally.
Wow, what an amazing sight these blossom trees created. Walking through the rows of pink sent me into a dreamlike state. Sometimes a slight breeze would flow through and create pink petals to drift around like snow. The temperature was surprisingly mild, allowing me to prance around in a sleeveless dress. I could have stayed there all day!
We were at Aumann’s Family Orchard in Warrandyte. They sell great quality fresh produce there if you ever pass that way. The trees are fenced off but it’s easy to enjoy the orchard from the outside. You could always check in the shop if you are able to have a look at the orchard.

Immersing myself in this field of blooms sent me on a natural high. This is what spring is about, the transition of seasons which leads us closer to where I want to be – in summer.
Unless you’re quick, the sea of pink will disappear very shortly. If you don’t get there, you’re most welcome to pop back here to enjoy the blossoms on the blog. Happy Spring!
