how is going?
First day of Spring, finally we can say goodbye to Winter even if in lots of country is still snowing.
Very sunny day in Milan, pleasant and enjoyable temperature, about 18-20 °C. The weekend will be not so good, it will rain again for couple of days. Need to be patient!
If there's one thing I hate, it's just the rain, I much prefer a cold and rigid day rather than a rainy and wet one.
So, today to celebrate Spring the postcard represents flowers :D
Isn't very nice? I think they are white cherry blossoms but I'm not 100% sure!
I really love this kind of flowers, they can be also pink.
Rita sent me this card from Lithuania, through postcrossing.com
This flower is a sign of good luck, a message of good wishes, but also a sign of brevity, because of his very short life: about two weeks.
In Japan it become one of the traditional plants of the state. There is a strong relationship between this tree and the flowers and the samurai.
One of the many legends says that the color of the petals (for those light pink of course) is so because it was impregnated with the blood of warriors who died at the roots. For this reason, only for the samurai was reserved the honor of the cherry blossom tattoo on the body.
