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.
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.
