Cherry Blossoms Opening on Mt. Yadake in Okinawa

Sakura (桜) Report #1



The Cherry Blossom Season started early, again this year.

The pink and red flowers were spotted by Doc Graff this morning.

So, you know where I went today.  Up that mountain.

It's cold and windy up there.

The little flower buds, are just starting to open.

Not being a real mathematician or anything like that, I'll take an uneducated guess.

Maybe, less than one percent of the Sakura (桜) are blooming.

Most of the cherry trees, still look like this one.

So, if you want to join the crowds of sakura chasers, start making travel plans.

By the middle of next month, Cherry Blossom Season should be going full throttle !
