Hazakura(葉桜) completely.

   On Mar.26, I wrote “The declaration of flowering(開花宣言)”. Now, it’s Hazakura(葉桜) completely. What is Hazakura(葉桜)? See the right image. 葉 means a leaf/leaves. 桜 means (a) cherry tree/trees. One of the most popular species of cherry tree in Japan is SomeiYoshino(染井吉野) which has blossoms first, after that its leaves grow. So we first see the blossoms only, and when we find the leaves the trees are all fresh green. We call the scenery Hazakura(葉桜).
 
   By the way, I’ll show you other photos of my garden flowers and fruits in the table.

  1. Hi, O6asan

    Wow!!! You are going to have a beauty spring! :)
    I think 4 and 3 are the cutest.

    What kind of fruit is the Anzu? Do you eat it?

    Bye bye

      It is maybe called ‘apricot’ in English. Yes, we can eat it raw, jam and liquor. I think they, on the Fig.11, are too young though.
