Hanami Picnic

The weather in our area is beautiful. Most everywhere you can see flowers in bloom or starting to open. The most spectacular is the half kilometer, cherry tree lined street a short distance from our house.

It's one of the top three "hanami" areas in the city and never fails to produce a stunning display of blossoms.

Yesterday we had a great family picnic under the blossoms. Ronan attracted a lot of attention because there aren't so many western children in our area. Everyone stopped to comment on the little baby and how he seemed to be enjoying the cherry blossoms.

I picked up some of the petals and hope to press them in his baby book.

The weather was perfect and the blossoms are in full bloom; we couldn't have had a more perfect day.
