Sakura ( 桜 ) Season Is Coming to Okinawa Any Day Now !

It was too cold for flip flops outside today in Okinawa, Japan.

That's a sure sign the the Cherry Blossoms ( Sakura, or  in Japanese ) are going to start sprouting.

The Sakura up in mainland Japan wait for the Spring thaw to bloom.

Okinawa has a different breed of cherry tree.

It takes a good crisp, cold snap of air to get the cherry blossoms blooming here.

Well, it's colder than a witch's ahem ahum, um, heart (?) here, right now.

That's how you know the Sakura ( 桜 ) Season will start, any day now.

There's a brand new pair of yellow flip flops and a bunch of those yellow Mejiro birds waiting for the cherry blossoms to bloom.

C'mon Mother Nature.....

Cherry Blossoms are one of my favorite trees.

Gorgeous Shot!

I can't wait personally until I can break out the flip flops again!
