cherry blossoms

They're comin' out! The delicate flower that depicts the true sensibilities of the Japanese people: the Cherry Blossom. The changing of the seasons and the beautiful colors of nature...

What the fuck am I talking about! Anyways, this is at Kyoto Imperial Palace. Picnic at the park! Saikou!

[updated, 03.30.2004: put up a couple more pictures]

Here's a pretty view of the whole tree.

And, to get a little better sense of the place, here's a picture with people walking 'round; there were quite a number of people taking pictures and picnicking on such a gorgeous day in Kyoto. Blue skies, and not a cloud in the sky!


ooooohhhh that is so great. Thanks for posting that.
I was looking at blossoms over here yesterday.

Wow, it must be warm over there; it's just barely reached over 60 yesterday. You lucky dawgs! And now it's raining today. Guess that means a good number of those blossoms I saw on Sunday are gone. Ah, such delicate creatures these plants be.

I'm planning on going to do some more hanami'ing (flower watching?) again later this week, so I should have more to show while these flowers awaken. (Hopefully, it doesn't rain)

Please do show flower pix. I love seeing them, I was over at a friends house and she was showing me her blooms at home. Lovely stuff.
