The Blossoms

Once again I bring you the cherry blossoms from the blooming trees in northern Japan where in forty years time you will a crazy crazy old white woman hobbling the streets, possibly with the equivalent of a present day SLR digital camera in her hand that is not holding the walking stick. Mentioning Andrew and R to her will probably produce a derisory snort.

If you want to take a look at the beauty, the blossoms stupid, not our friend in northern Japan. Click on this link and select Java.

Bit different this year. Here is a night shot of Hirosake Castle with the blossoms in the foreground.

    They're much better in the flesh, so to speak. And what do you mean 'crazy old woman'?????? To quote Catherine Tate - How very dare you! Vik. : )
