Daffodils from the hills...

Yesterday was what the Japanese call 春一番 Haru ichiban...
Shall I say, the first strong wind to mark the start of the spring season?
The winds were, well, howling the whole day and night...

At the individual level, it means the start of the running nose season for yours truly...
In other words, yes, the pollens from the Japanese ceder trees are starting to burst and fly...

Anyway, took today off from work...
It's been a while since I walked the hills with my sweeto haato...

And woah... the daffodils by the hillsides...
Their fragrance... their simplicity... their beauty...

Meanwhile, the nose, oooh... the eyes, itchy...
And... aaaacccchuuunnggg!!
