お花見

its sakura season & i've never been more excited. i spent the past weekend hopping from one cherry blossom viewing to the next & partook in an ohanami (a picnic, for the sole purpose of admiring the pink trees). its unbelievable how gorgeous this country looks right now. wish you all could see... 










Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
On Meadow-hills and mountains
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the morning sun.
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Flowers in full bloom.
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Across the Spring sky,
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the air.
Come now, come,
Let’s look, at last!

Oh! what are beautiful pictures!
It got derayed the cherry blossom out due to cold and rain.
But you could saw them for longer period than every years.

Have you seen the luminous cherry blossom at night?

Bell!

That song was on a cassette tape that you used to listen to as a child! I can still hear it!

BEAUTIFUL! The blossoms are stupendous. What a beautiful world in which we live.

All things bright and beautiful...the Lord God made them all.

Love immer, Mom
