Yangmingshan in Spring

Hi all,

I’ve decided to exhume my old blog again and have posted a few impressions of the ongoing cherry blossom season as well as some other assorted Spring greenery
(Also a warning about certain unsavory individuals)

Enjoy, and I’d be much obliged if anyone could ID the flowers, the prickly thing and the first tree!

PS: Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, but I figured since it’s a kindasorta advertising for Yangmingshan, the travel section is the place for it. I’d thought of putting it under “Living”, but that seems to more about the dangers than the pleasures of living here :rainbow:
