Nanji Stream Park Has Cherry Blossoms Too!
There are the more popular places to see cherry blossoms like Namsan Mountain and Yeouido but there are cherry blossoms all over the city and the country of Korea for that matter.
From one cherry blossom flowering in a yard just there to the lined courtyards of universities. These beautiful blooms abound and you don’t have to go far to find a lovely little plot if you’re keeping your eyes to the skies to see where they are. We headed to our go-to World Cup Park yesterday and found this lovely plot of flowering trees in Nanji Stream Park. The babies played beneath them not at all interested in the flowers above and more interested in the dirt beneath, but that was fine. Outside time is the best time as far as we’re concerned.
This week is THE week to get out and about and enjoy the flowers because trust me, as quick as they’re here, they are gone again and usually due to an overnight rain. Take your camera, or just some friends or family, and enjoy the scenes.
The spring is welcoming us all to go outside and don’t forget to say, “thank you for gracing us with your beauty,” while you’re out there.
