The first pic is particularly stunning. I love cherry blossoms!
AV,You'd love Japan in late April-early March.
I love cherry blossoms too.I know you are farther south, so I am not surprised that you have them already, but do they really bloom in most parts of Japan in early April?
Taff,Actually they were late in Miyazaki and early everywhere else this year (or so it seemed). Yeah, they're basically finished now (still some petals on the trees, but most are on the ground or blowing in the wind).
