I found this ume tree in a park yesterday.
Ume (Prunus mume) is known as "Ume","Japanese apricot" or "chinese plum" in English.
It is one of typical blossom in spring in Japan.
Ume blooms earlier than cherry blossom.
North wind blows and it is is still cold.
But the blossoms tell me the spring is approaching to here in funabashi.
