Lovin Japan - Cherry Blossoms
We ran to Statue of Liberty Park in hopes of catching Cherry Blossoms. Unfortunately, it began to rain - but we're hardy. I'm pretty sure Michael will have some photos of the landscape to add...but here are the ones I tagged to share.
We wait and wait and WAIT for the blossoms to bloom....they are beautiful, delicate and short-lived. They remind one of the beauty and brevity of life. They are to be celebrated. Parks are lit at night and people enjoy flower viewing parties (Hanamei) in the parks. Spring storms often blow all the blossoms away days after they bloom.
We hope to make it to Hirosaki to view blossoms shortly.....on "the weekends" it was raining and we hear only one or two trees were blooming....we're trying to find a time to get up there before a storm blows them all away. Maybe Friday or Saturday.
Living all of life before the face of God...
