If you know me even just a little, you know one of my main inspirations in life is Cherry Blossom. The Sakura is just magnificent. The petals, the flowers, the different shades of pinks, the intoxicating smell, along with the beautiful weather, all make my mind go crazy and my heart sing. I mean it's a pink beautiful magic, that is happening for 2 weeks each year. Cherry blossom is the unicorn of blossoms! In general, I'm a happier person in spring.
Though I wasn't lucky enough to see the original Sakura in Japan (yet), I did manage to catch it in Washington DC this year, where the national all is covered with fluffy bloom, where every photo is a postcard waiting to be photographed and you drown in petals and beauty. It is as glorious as they say!
This weekend I also went to watch the BBG (Brooklyn Botanical gardens) version of Cherry Blossom, the beautiful though small garden in blooming in full prettiness like a pink rug. People enjoying themselves on the grass, taking selfies and trying to capture the moment. It's smaller, but the Botanical Gardens in spring are blossoming and the Japanese garden is always a joy to look at.
I promised myself I'll go to watch the original at the land of the rising sun.
