Cherry Blossom time

Back from Nihon (Japan) and headed home shortly
We'll get our own cherry blossoms soon

Following gives a small sense of the attitude in Nihon where cherry blossoms are celebrated for beauty and change, not as a crop with future cash.

asahi.com(朝日新聞社):A cherry tree's personality lies in its trunk - English:

"Spring is the go-between that enables people to meet cherry trees. This year's spring is deepening, never to return."
