Cherry Blossoms

The cherry trees have finally blossomed near my house. Unfortunately, as there is supposed to be stormy weather this weekend, the blossoms may not last very long. As promised, here are the photos I took today.

Cherry Blossom Buds

It is March 29, and the cherry trees are blossoming all over the Kansai area–everywhere except in our neck of the woods, north Shiga. It’s still too cold here. Fortunately, the buds should open up in a few days. When they do, I’ll post some photos. Until then, here is a photo of some cherry blossom buds, nearly ready to blossom.
