Sakura, or cherry blossoms, are one of my favourite flowers. For one thing.. they are pink! And they look so delicate and ladylike.
I was going going through some old photos and came upon these ones, taken in Beijing about 2 years ago in April at this park called 玉渊谭公园. It is extremely crowded in the weekends.. But weekdays are less scary.. and it is nice to visit when the sakura flowers are in bloom in April.
Of course, I love the sakuras at Shinjuku Gyoen in Tokyo as well.
Thought I'd use a picture of these as my blog's header and share some pictures as well.. :)
