While walking in Kensington Gardens with Little Tyke and Mini Tyke, we came across a cherry blossom tree in full bloom. It’s picture time!!!
In Japan, cherry blossoms are called sakura, a special flower for the people and the country.It is also a Japanese traditional custom enjoying the transient beauty of the cherry blossoms. This is called a hanami.Today, me, George along with Little Tyke and Mini Tyke – we had a little hanami!
May’s comment: The cherry blossoms are out. These delicate beautiful blossoms signifies Spring. So fragile and so fleeting – probably why we appreciate them so much more during the short time they appear. Some say they are symbolic of the fragility and beauty of life.
Sakura, Sakura is a Japanese children’s song – which I had learnt to sing at Music Class in primary school.
Sakura, Sakura, blossoms waving everywhere.
Clouds of glory fill the sky.
Mist of beauty in the air,
lovely colors floating by.
Let all come singing.
