CHERRY BLOSSOM TODAY (今日の桜)

Five days have passed since the wild cherry tree in our garden tarted to bloom, and it is nearly in full bloom now.

(開花から5日経過して、満開に近い状態になっています。)

These two pictures were shot from the south side, showing the cherry between the gazebo and the shed in the potager.

Four pictures below were shot from the north, looking down the sea.  Many Japanese white-eyes (Zosterops japonicus,) come every day, and suck nectar from cherry blossoms.

A story about the cherry can be read here, and a story about the gazebo windows also can be found in this post.

    It is definitely Spring where you are. Lovely photos which brighten up a dreary, grey and windy day in the UK.
    Best wishes
