When the Cherry Blossoms Fall

Everything must come to an end. But what an end! We should all hope to have an ending as magnificent as the sakura when they rain down.

When Cherry Blossoms Fall

The end of the cherry blossoms, when the wind blows them all off the trees and they shower down like white rain, is generally the most looked forward to and beloved part of the season. The cherry blossoms themselves are beautiful, but when they rain down—that’s magic.

For a week or two after they start falling, you can find the fallen petals everywhere: covering the roads, grass, buildings, cars, and so on. Some places try to neatly sweep them up, but most people are content to let them lie until rain carries them away.
