Spring is in the air and the cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom. That meant that we had to go out for cherry blossom viewing and none of this casually walking around viewing – my wife wanted to get dressed in her best spring kimono (with cherry blossom obi) to go out and view them. So today we took off at 4:00pm and did the rounds – here are a few photos from the trip:
Before we even left to get to the cherry blossoms, I had to take photos of the kimono:
We arrived to view the cherry blossoms with still a bit of daylight left outside:
but before long the sun started to go down:
Before it got completely dark I had to get at least one close-up
And as dusk turned to darkness, they turned lights onto the cherry trees
If it doesn’t rain this week, we’ll probably make one more trip to view the cherry blossoms (if it rains, then they all fall off). The cherry blossoms only last about a week, but Spring is now here.
