spring has sprung

We found some early blooming sakura (cherry blossoms) on our walk yesterday. The rest should be in full bloom within the next couple of weeks.

  9. Les- It's the best season here! Not too hot and everything is so pretty. :)

    Nymeth- I love cherry blossom season. :)

    Literary Feline- You're welcome. :)

    ideru- We just got back from visiting Hiroshima and Himeji. Himeji is starting to bloom and will be in full bloom next week. Tokyo is already in full bloom so we actually missed it a bit this year by being away this past week. Oh well. It was fun to get away.

    Grace- Tokyo is in full bloom now and Kansai will be in the next week or so. I love this season I just wish it would last longer!
