Cherry blossoms update

I am sure that a lot of bloggers are putting more effort into this than I am, but here is an update on the cherry blossoms anyway. Actually, I just liked these pictures and wanted to put them online.

These were taken on Sunday on Sakurazaka behind Ark Hills and the ANA Hotel. It looks like 40% of the blossoms had opened. Not many had fallen off the trees yet and with no rain so far, it should look pretty impressive when the trees reach full bloom.

The picture on the left is a close up of one of the branches, which gives you a good idea how far along we are. On the right, is an actual tree (!)...it will look even better as the week progresses.
