Well Hanami Is Over

The cherry blossoms have finally fallen off the trees. I personally find this time a little sad. I know I know, fresh start, spring has begun etc...

Really, though, when they are in full bloom it reminds me of an Akira Kurosawa film I saw when I was 17. I believe it was Dreams. There was one scene it was fantastic with all these beautiful kimono clad women walking under beautiful mankai (full bloom) cherry trees. Leaves fluttering down like pink snow.
