I just read a wonderful blog post written by my WordPress buddy – do you know what “that person is a cheery blossom” would mean in Japanese? I didn’t! You should go check it out!
I have been very jealous the past few weeks, seeing all my facebook friends who are back in Japan talk about how they’ve had sakura parties. Germany is still pretty cold, though it’s warmed up considerably. But still not the right kind of weather for sitting under pretty trees.
In town I discovered these pretty flowers… they aren’t sakura of course, but they were pretty enough and attracted quite a few Asian Frankfurters who were taking photos.
I might go have a cup of tea underneath these trees and it’ll be my kind of hanami!
