Hanami

I live fairly close to Brogdale where they keep the national fruit collection. This year they had a Hanami festival to celebrate the blossom. It’s an ancient tradition from Japan, dating back over 1000 years. What a nice thing to do – just wandering through the blossom in sunshine and admiration….

Well, the sun did shine fleetingly a couple of times, just to prove it could ;).

Yet it’s such an enchanting idea….the trees that were flowering were beautiful, and so many shades and forms. I’ve named what I can remember. And the paper lanterns bumping in the breeze so atmospheric.
