Kawazu-zakura




Kawazu-zakura is a kind of cherry blossom that blooms in winter.
It has beautiful pink petals.

I took these photos today.
It has not been in full bloom yet, but I was moved by beauty of the blossom.

I just love cherry blossoms. My grandfather brought back dishes from Japan for my grandmother that were painted with cherry blossoms and I now have them. They are such a gorgeous flower and one of my favorites. Your photos are wonderful, as usual Nobu!
