Pink Blossoms


There are still alot of plum blossoms in bloom around Tokorozawa. The plum blossoms are alot more pink than the cherry blossoms, which I like.

I think more people have plum trees in their yards here because the 'ume' (plum) is considered to be lucky.

I agree with m_m: such beautiful colors.

The images you have taken seem so quintessentially Japanese.

With the warm weather it might be a nice way to enjoy the blossoming plums this way:
