|Sakura tunnel beside the river...|
You wanted to see a zillion photos of cherry blossoms, right? Good--because this week's posts will be full of them:-) The trees over the weekend were "Mankai", in Full Bloom (the TV news reports every day from the day the first blossom opens, what percentage "open" the trees are. That's right--the opening of the cherry blossoms is front page news. This is a nation that has its priorities straight, I tell you... ;-). It rained Saturday, but not hard enough to knock the blossoms off (a common occurrence). Sunday was sunny and lovely, though, and there was hardly room to sit beneath the blossoms.
Come take a little walk with me--there's almost nothing nicer than walking through a tunnel of cherry trees in full bloom:-)
