Cherry Blossoms/桜の花

I previously posted a photo (second one from the top) of a line of cherry trees here. The trees are now almost in full bloom! Spring is late in coming here in this snowy area, and is especially so this year.

Itadori (Japanese knotweed) are still small, as you can see from the two photos below.

You live in a beautiful area.

Rinshinnomori: I do live in a beautiful area, and that's one of the reasons why I can't leave here, but I'm sure there are a lot other places in Japan that are beautiful.
