In Bloom

Originally uploaded by Bob Owen

Our honeymoon visit to Tokyo put is there right at the beginning of the city’s Cherry Blossom Festival. The cherry blossom trees are everywhere in the city. To celebrate, whole families will mark of areas to camp out under the trees.

The cherry trees really are lovely in bloom. The flowers can be quite fleeting as a week later the petals will stream with the wind like snow.

Taken in the Happoen Gardens in Tokyo. This tree was over 175 years old.
