Places To See Pretty Spring Blossoms!

Written by Martine Somerville

As Spring arrives pretty blossoms begin to bloom,
Why not visit some places where they flourish before their lives end soon,
Enjoy trees that have pastel paint colours on every branch,
With pretty flowers exploding in a white and pink avalanche!
