Sakura

An early post today, as I wanted to make sure this picture reached Japan on March 11th. Today is the anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake, which happened in the Tohoku region of Japan last year. Let’s remember the people who suffered today.

Sakura, or cherry blossom, is blooming in Golders Green. Sakura is one of the most well-known symbols of Japan, and it signifies the beauty of life, and how fleeting it is.

As some of you will know, I also have a blog about Japan: Haikugirl’s Japan. Please check it out if you’re interested.

(By the way, I’m no flower expert, but this looks like cherry blossom to me. Please do correct me if I’m wrong though!)
