We're in the coldest time of the year. But early spring blossoms have already started blooming.

Lovely white Narcissus blossoms are at full bloom on Jogashima Island, a tiny island off the south end of Miura Peninsula, heralding the arrival of spring.

Today's Japanese phrase:
“Mosugu haru desune!” もうすぐ春ですね! =  Spring is just around the corner! 

“mosugu" もうすぐ = before long, "haru" 春 = spring, ".. desune" ですね =It is.., isnt'it?

You can also say:

"Mosugu tanjobi desune!" もうすぐ誕生日ですね! =  Your birthday is around the corner!

"Mosugu shumatsu desune" もうすぐ週末ですね!= Weekend is around the corner!
