Cherry blossom!

Weekly Topic: What marks the start of spring in your culture?

Mar 5, 2019

日本の春といえばやっぱり桜。
写真は静岡県に住む母が、3月1日に送ってくれたものです。一般的に桜は3月の終わりから4月のはじめくらいに満開になるんだけど、この桜は種類が違うのかな。
ほぼ満開。春ですね。
 
What comes to your mind when you hear the Japanee spring? It reminds me of cherry blossom!
This photo was taken by my mom on March 1. She lives in Shizuoka prefecture, which located in central Japan. March 1 is too early for normal cherry blossom, so I guess this is kind of some unique breed.
This is in almost full bloom. Spring has come!
