sakura walk

on the way to the market❤︎  #minoo #osaka #cherryblossom #桜 #箕面 #大阪 #latergram #nofilter Yesterday on the way to the market, I got a photo of this weeping cherry.

one more up close❤︎  #latergram #nofilter #大阪 #箕面 #桜 #minoo #osaka #cherryblossom The blossoms should be in full bloom by the end of the week (so says the weather dude).

Since most of my favorite spots around our neighborhood haven't started blooming yet, I will try to check them out again next week.

Did you ever wonder how the weather people determine when the trees will start blooming?

Apparently each area has a designated tree, when that tree has 5 or 6 flowers that have bloomed, the weather people then announce that the cherry blossom season has started for that area.

Then about a week later, temperatures and weather permitting, the flowers should be in full bloom.

Interesting, yeah?!

I like how your weather dude actually says when the trees will bloom -- me, I gotta guess by judging on current weather status, area, and elevation.

The weather people here are quite accurate, Rowena, sometimes down to the time of day!

Take care.
