おひさ~ Long time no blog

Well, let's just assume that long gap in communication on my end was a weird time warp and all is as was, but different. Is that vague enough to be excused? Regardless the blog is back in action, in great part to the talented Kim over at Serious Duck. She spent hours laboring over my brand new shiny banner, featuring some of my favorite things. Drop by and show her some love, and if you're keen, why not commission something?

Anyway, short and sweet for now, but there will be more.



You can do it, toadie! カエルさん、頑張れー!
It's a tough ride, and sometimes you have to take a break. But as long as you just keep trying, you're all good.

Tokyo Walking 28 東京ウォーキング

This week's Tokyo Walking shots are from Kamakura.
All were taken on June 4th, 2012.
Previous Tokyo Walking posts can be found here.
Just a note: Kamakura is actually in Kanagawa prefecture, but I'm not about to change the title now! Or ever, for that matter. Hokkaido, Okinawa, Osaka...They will all be under "Tokyo Walking", just subtitled wherever else it is. Yes, I'm that lazy. ;)

Ding Dong 桜はもう...

the sakura's dead, officially as of Thursday May 3rd, 2012. The cantankerous cherry blossom tree down the street has had its rebellion quelled by the torrential rain we've had here on the 2nd and the 3rd. It put up a pretty good fight,but the rain was stronger. I've commenced a mourning period that would have been briefer had not the weather been so frustratingly erratic.
今月の2日と3日の大雨は最後の桜の殺人だ! (ノД`)・゜・。

Regardless, since I'm rather obsessed with taking pictures of sakura blossoms and less than consistent with actually posting said photos, here's a collection of the ones I took this year. I present to you Sakura - the 2012 edition.

だけど、まだアップされてないので、これから「桜、2012」表示だ! (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

Plum's the Word 梅ちゃーん!

Now this is already old news (be prepared for a lot of that where this blog is concerned, got a lot of catching up to do still) but since I absolutely adore these blossoms, I couldn't let them go completely unmentioned.

Many of you will be familiar with the fact that cherry blossoms are a big thing here in Japan. This is the week for the flowers as they're all in full bloom. I personally love almost anything sakura (except cake - tried about three different types and they were all too sweet, yuck), but before Spring truly arrives (think February), the plum blossoms have a brief, but spectacular season of their own.
