Resting Cherry Blossom Petals

When they start to fall… that is the best time of the cherry blossoms.

Cherry Blossom Shower

As much as everyone loves the cherry blossoms, most peoples’ favorite time is when they start to fall. Because of the large number of trees planted together, when the blossoms start to fall it is like it is raining petals. Here is a poem from Issa that I enjoy:

さすが花ちるにみれんはなかりけり
when cherry blossoms
scatter…
no regrets
—Issa

Daily Photo: Resting Cherry Blossom Petals

It’s rare that I have a chance to take a photo of the fallen blossoms before the rain gets to them. Most years it is the rain that starts bringing them down. This year, however, the wind was very strong, bringing them down almost as soon as they bloomed.
