The arrival of Spring and pink cherry blossom prompted Ailsa to choose pink as her theme this week.

These 2 posters wished us a happy new year and cheerfully featured cherry blossom in their design but, alas, we saw no sign of the real thing! I think we had arrived earlier than the blossom and it was unseasonably cold in Hanoi.

In the grounds of the monument honouring Emperor Le Loi I came across this poem carved in stone with a vase of pink lilies in front of it
