A Flooding Of Gorgeous Flowers
During about 2-3 weeks there is the very famous cherry blossom in Japan. A blooming wave starting in the south and slowly heading north.
Flowers, flowers, flowers - Nara
Parks, alleyways river shores just about where ever you look the landscape is painted of pastel rose. I the morning I can see the people of all ages admiring the blossom. Families and Business people are having picnics under the "sakura" or "Japanese cherry tree" on blue plastic sheets during these days. I was told that the start of a calender year is on January first but in Japanese minds and hearts the start of a new year is in the spring. During the spring kids start school and nature is sprouting.

Of course we had to see this famous blossom in some special place like Kyoto and Nara. I went to those places with my French and a Korean friends. Unfortunately the sky was not that blue. But I guess you might still get a good impression looking the pictures.
There are a couple more pictures if yo check my photographies...
