2012 Picture of the Week (14/52) – Cherry blossoms in Fujisawa

Cherry blossoms were late to bloom this year due to the colder than usual winter and early spring. But they finally bloomed! I took this picture yesterday at Hikijigawa Shinsui Park (引地川親水公園) along the Hikiji River. Unfortunately, rain later this week will likely end the short cherry blossom season.

The cherry trees were blooming between 20 and 80% yesterday. Not full bloom yet.

    Beautiful stuff! That’s the thing they only last such a short time and you have got to get in quick.

    The fleeting, ethereal beauty of the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom… this is Japan and the heart of Bushido!!
