Cherry Blossom 🌸

Hi there! How’s it going?

I’ve taken a few pictures of my garden’s cherry tree.

There are some photographs I’d like to share:


I love flowering trees, especially cherry trees. And as the anime fan I am I guess the reason is obvious.

In Japan, cherry blossoms are called sakura. These flowers represent the spring and the rebirth. Sakura also have a deeper meaning  – the trees flourish only during a few weeks in April and then they fall. Japanese people relate that with the circle of life and the beauty of youth.

Japanese people celebrate this time with parties called hanami. It must be awesome to be there at that time!
