Cherry trees are beautiful, particularly when they are in bloom. It's just coming into cherry blossom season in Kanuma (not the big trees but the little ones). There was a flower/plant festival on saturday and lots of vendors were selling flowering plants, including bonsai (not only flowering bonsai, all kinds). They were so beautiful! I had every intention of walking past all the plants (I even did for awhile) but the cherry trees smelled so nice and were so pretty that, in the end, I couln't resist. So I now own a bonsai flowering cherry (the kind with pink flowers) and my apartment has a touch of spring in it.
