  2. The cherry blossoms seasons has arrived and millions of visitors are heading to see them all over Japan. You have shared some pretty flowers and birds. The apricot and weeping willow trees are beautiful.

    The only place where I was fortunate to see cherry blossoms was around the Kumamoto Castle.

  7. 小川や池ではリフレクションも取り入れ一枚目のようないいお写真が撮れますね。若い柳の糸は柔らかな緑が素敵です。建物も綺麗です。こちらでは桜は2~3分咲き、まだ咲いている梅もありますよ。

  12. Minoruさんいち早く桜を楽しまれたのですね!こちらは開花したばかりです。
    皇居のサクラが5分咲き多くの人が訪れてるのが放映されてました。しだれ柳が雰囲気出てます。
    水面すれすれを飛ぶサギ優雅です。うっとりする素敵な羽ドレスです。
