"CHERRY BLOSSOM"

The BLOSSOMS are a' coming and I'm soooooo excited.... The  Festival of Cherry Blossoms will soon line the streets of Japan in a glorious cascade of pink and white blossoms cascading  like fairies onto the streets... March and April mark the beginning and end  of the festivities. Couldn't help creating afew Cherry Blossom ATC's in celebration ... Naturally it's called 'Cherry Blossom' ( ha ha)

I will arrive in Kitakyushu, Japan  just in time to snap a few hundred picture with my camera and  join into the celebration in and around the bustling communities ... To people in North America it's just a bunch of trees blooming .

In Japan, it's  beauty and harmony  and  a time to bask in the glory of nature... This is a picture of my friend, Mikio under a double flowering Cherry Blossom tree. .. It takes your breath away , doesn't it !!!!

Experiencing  the  thousands  of  Cherry trees, dotting the countryside  in full bloom  is  literally a vision of pink heaven. I will send pictures !!!!
