beautiful photos!


I'm visiting Japan in about three weeks, but all these blossoms will be gone by then :( At least I can live vicariously through you....

LOLs about the legs. What is she wearing? A metallic pink asymmetrical dress thing with matching bag? To be honest, I'd stare too, and I'm a straight female.


Wow - is it fragrant as well as visually beautiful?


I was in Japan for the first time for 2 weeks - left a week ago.... what a wonderful place .. reliving it all through blogs such as yours, which is excellent.. found it looking for a recipe :-)


Thanks Kat!

Tamara, if you hit northern Japan you might get to see the cherry blossoms. And if not, it's still a great time to come as all the trees will have new leaves and there will be lots of other flowers.
She's wearing a pink leopard print coat and it looks asymmetrical but it's that one side of the coat was flapping in the wind, thus exposing more leg, thus increasing the stares. She was the flashiest member of a group of pretty Russian ladies and was getting a lot of attention.

Joe, most sakura don't have a fragrance. A few do but it's really subtle and more of a green and foresty than a floral smell.

Thanks Tone!


I got inspired with the pics you posted earlier of sakura i added one more cherry tree in our garden so we now have 2. The 1st one is 5 yrs old and it gave us about 3 fruits last year..lol i will try to take pics of the flowers once it starts blooming...thx for the nice pictures

Wonderful pics, it's easy to see why the Japanese make such an event out of the sakura zensen.
Keep up the nice work on the blog!

thanks for the wonderful photos of the cherry blossoms.


pictures of cherry blossoms always makes my day!


Thanks for the comments! I feel lucky to be able to see this spectacle every year.

Lilian, good luck with your cherries! Sadly, most ornamental sakura don't produce fruit, or at least not very good fruit.
