Almost Cherry Blossom Time in Tokyo

“What a strange thing! to be alive beneath cherry blossoms.” ― Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)

The plum blossoms are out...

The cherries will soon be here....

Time to enjoy the spring of another year.

Another year of renewal and hope.

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast



“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." ― Anne Bradstreet, The Works of Anne Bradstreet


“If people did not love one another, I really don't see what use there would be in having any spring.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables


"Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul." - Henry Ward Beecher 



“I enjoy the spring more than the autumn now. One does, I think, as one gets older.” ― Virginia Woolf, Jacob's Room


“Despite the forecast, live like it's spring.” ― Lilly Pulitzer


“I suppose the best kind of spring morning is the best weather God has to offer.” ― Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle

Hey Mike,
The Cheery blossoms are pink flowers, aren't they? So what are the white flowers?
