As our friend Hiro-san suggested in his comment to the previous posting...it might be better to ride a bicycle than drive a car to watch the blossoms...
Of course, my eyes have followed this lady riding her bicycle through the narrow "tunnel" created by the full branches on the side of the road...
This is just a memory now...cherry blossoms (Someiyoshino type) are gone by now and new leaves have taken their place. In exchange the multipetalled cherry blossom are richly blooming - like kittens on branches - and also the green blossoms of a rather rare type of sakura are also hanging on branches.
It is time for the wild azaleas....another great show!
