Blossom hunter

I have become a blossom hunter, scanning each street or park we go to, hoping to spot a tree still in flower.  Each discovery sends me diving for my camera, filling up my memory card with images of the stunning beauty of not only the flowers, but the form of the tree and where it sits in its surrounds. I love that the Japanese have a special name for this - hanami, the traditional Japanese custom of enjoying the beauty of blossom.


  1. Wow. I adore cherry blossoms (and crab apple). They are just so charming. Japan must look amazing right now - the perfect time to visit. x

  2. gorgeous, such a beautiful flower and shade of pink!
