My little cherry blossom tree in my garden.


I took this picture in rainy today.  But I like little rain.
Riverside of cherry blossoms trees is for hanami.
Hanami means seeing flowers and the flowers mean cherry blossoms in almost cases.April is turning point for us in Japan.
We celebrate the graduation and enrollment for elementary school, junior high school, high school, university with cherry blossoms in April.

Is hanami a synonym for bliss?

Love the light and background on your cherry blossoms Makiko. Leaves a very pleasant visual feeling.

We're hoping our cherry blossoms don't come too soon as we're having too cold of temperatures right now. There's even still snow in the ravines of the valley here. Our poor bees are getting pretty impatient for some real nectar!

Prairie Painter,
Oh, thank you!
My son had living in Wisconsin for three years. He told me Wisconsin was very cold because temperature is -40 degrees in Fahrenheit in Winter. Iowa is next Wisconsin I know listening your coldness.
