I finally braved the cold this afternoon and wandered through つつじヶ丘公園 (Tsutsujigaoka Park) snapping photos of 桜 (Sakura=Cherry Blossoms) willy nilly. Unlike previous years, I didn't attend a 花見 (Hanami party) and flake out on a tarp, drink copious amounts of booze while contemplating the fleetingness of life as attributed to the falling of petals. Rather...I just took pics of lots of blossoms & flowers. Following a brief YouTube, here they are.

BTW: This is my 1500th post!! So I've included a few snapshots of another iconic image of Japan and some of his pals. Try and figure out who it is...
