h-kun and i did hanami last night. doing hanami involves enjoying the cherry blossoms. with family. or friends. and some food, too. of course. we headed to a famous area. along a river. where the trees are so old. and so full. and lit up at night. one of my favorite hanami places. for sure.
h-kun was a little more interested in this. the takoyaki stall. (octopus balls. yes, you may giggle.) and the hot sake. this is typical festival food. this young lad was selling it out of the back of his little truck. this is typical, too. we also shared a baked sweet potato. my favorite.
love the light. at night. on the blossoms. magical. absolutely.
remember. i am not apologizing. for too many sakura pictures. here is our little tree. just blooming away. in a couple of days they will all be open. and wonderful. right in my living room. amazing. and i'm sure you'll get to experience it, too. right here.
