Last Saturday, the weather was semi-perfect. Sunny but the wind was icy.
Satoshi and I walked to Ferdinand and had breakfast, then walked through Suigetsu Park and came home.
Then for lunch, we went up to the area near Minoo station and discovered this park, Ashihara Park. (You would think after living here for nearly 10 years we would've known about this park.)
There was a tiny pony near a person selling flowers and plants and the cherry blossom had started to bloom.
The one thing we noticed was that there were a lot of people fishing at Ashihara Park. (I wonder what they were catching...)
Nearly a week later, we've had some rainy and windy days, many cold days.
Yesterday after the rain stopped, I went out for a walk and found more trees in bloom.
Up near Asahigaoka, which I've posted about before here and here and here, the trees are nearly in full bloom.
I also found a house with a LOT of tulips...beautiful!
Now, if we can only get some sun with this...
