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.
なくなってしまった。
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.

桜が好き過ぎて、今年たくさん写真を撮った。
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
I did a brief wander around Nakameguro again this year, but last year's shots (and weather, not to mention crowd conditions!) were significantly better.
今年も中目黒の方ちょっと見に行ったけど、やっぱ去年の写真のほうがきれいだった。




The main bulk end up being random shots I take while walking (which I'm sure most of you know I do a lot of).
でも写真はほとんど散歩中で撮った。
よくするからね。(o^∇^o)





And I even managed to fit in a "proper" hanami party, with all the trimmings. (Read: Going to one party, then crashing a much better equipped one and shamelessly tucking in their food. Kimchi chige and oden = win.)
本物の花見もやったよ~
っていうか、しらない会社の花見を参加して...途中でほかの会社の花見入ってしまった~(*´▽`*)
その会社の社長はその花見パーティーに招いてくれたから。
そっちのほうが美味しい食べ物が多いし(キムチチゲとおでんとか)、お酒もいっぱい~ (笑)

Plum wine in a can and mitarashi dango. I'm one classy chick, no? 缶梅酒とみたらし団子。悪くない!


And this year I was lucky enough to have time to head back to Kansai for a few days, and managed to get some good shots in the middle of Osaka and a guy trying to pick me up as an added bonus. (゚∇^*)
今年はちょっと関西の方もへ行ったので、大阪の都内ショットもできた♪
...撮り中ナンパされたけどね (笑)
さすが大阪~(゚∇^*)




And thus it's with not some regret the cherry blossom season ends, mostly because from here on out all we can expect is insufferable heat and humidity. Hurrah. (^^;)b
まぁね、今年の桜季節は相変わらず短かったね。
これから...
これから。。。死ぬほどの蒸し暑さを頑張りましょう... (o´_`o)ハァ・・・
