dc sakura tree 201303167355

Sakura or cherry blossom season will soon be here.

To the Japanese this is something that often makes the lead story on the news.

This tree near my house is in a private garden, but is illuminated and the owners of the house even let visitors walk around their property to admire the, I admit, quite impressive tree. I am sure I will enjoy and shoot some of the Hanami parties that accompany the full blossoming in a few weeks time.

Off to work

  1. Ahhh, how I miss cherry blossom season in Japan. The cherry blossom in Edinburgh is gorgeous, but it’s so damn cold and no-one does “hanami”…will have to get some pals together with a dram and do it this year.
