THE BLOSSOMS ARE OUT

This is MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE time in Shenyang!!! It’s Blossom season in April and I thought I would miss it! WE are flying home for 3 weeks TOMORROW. We will be gone during prime blossom time and there’s not a chance that my beautiful crab apple trees in Canada will bloom while I am home. I’ll be lucky if the snow is even gone…

Because we had a mild winter in Shenyang and the temps have been so nice early in the season, the blossoms are early this year and I am thankful because I get to enjoy the beauty. It’s just like they have appeared overnight! think why I love it SO MUCH is that China in Winter and early Spring is so grey and brown. Add that with grey skies of pollution… EVERYONE gets excited to see that first pop of pink colour! It’s almost like a monochrome picture that has a filter to pop the pink!

These last few days before we fly I have been out walking a lot and I am enjoying the pops of colour because it won’t be here when I return in 3 weeks…but  everything will  be green.

 

 

 

LOTS of pics!!! But I want to always be able to look back at my favourites and remember this wonderful season in Shenyang!

NOW to finish packing!!! I am such a procrastinator sometimes…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
