Sunday after the rains on Saturday, it was still grey and drizzly.

We woke up early and checked out our favorite street lined with cherry trees.

There were a lot of petals on the ground but the bulk of the blooms were still on the tree.

Then, we zipped over to Kyoto to visit MIL.

The area near the Botanical Garden was quite soggy, but there were a couple of weeping cherry trees that were in full bloom.

Along Kamo River, more trees were in full bloom.

Despite the drizzles and grey, I was surprised there were a lot of people out and about.

We picked up some Kamo Donuts. And had them after lunch. (coconut chocolate for me, cream filled cruller for Satoshi and chocolate covered custard filled "monster" for MIL)

After lunch, MIL let us clean a little bit, though we did not even making a dent in what needs to get done...sigh.

Still, I'm glad we got to visit with her and see some sakura.

I am glad we do not live with MIL, Rowena, the donut shop is just a couple of feet away from her place!

love transportation here, Jalna :)

Take care you two.

We're glad it didn't rain very hard when we were in Kyoto, Kat! The drizzly weather made for a nice backdrop to the sakura photos.
