The cherry blossoms in South Korea in Spring are pretty amazing, but from what I've heard, in Japan it's much better. We didn't get to go and look at the 'proper' cherry tree groves. The ones below were just on the streets around where we live.
As its heating up the petals are all starting to fall off the trees. When the wind blows it almost looks like snow. Very pretty. This afternoon when Rich & I were walking home from school he was playing with the fallen petals.
