Although I have been so looking forward to our spring break vacation, I was SO SAD when I realized that our sakura trees were going to blossom a good three weeks earlier this year than last. This is how our trees look now. They are already pretty, and I wish that I was a better photographer so that I could capture their loveliness. But this is nothing compared to viewing them in full bloom as they will probably be next week. We are leaving tomorrow and will miss it! It's enough to keep me in Japan for spring break next year.
