pink in bloom part II

A tad late but cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The little flowers only last for a few days and they'll be all gone with wind. There is a saying that the flowers are beautiful because they will just go and don't linger...
We had another big aftershock the night before yesterday.  This one was quite big but no tsunami this time.  It has been nearly a month since the Big One.  With the help from all over the country as well as overseas, the things in the affected area have been improved a little.  Some of the towns affected had huge dikes, one of them being 10m in height, which should have withstood tsunami but they didn't.  Whether the affected area is suitable for human habitation remain unclear.
Beverly at How Sweet The Sound is hosting another Pink Saturday this weekend, too.  Please visit her blog and see how a bunch of us concentrate on something pink.  Wish you Happy Pink Saturday.


  1. Chloe Patricia, these are stunning. I saw them on another blog, and I can just never get enough of seeing these lovely blooms. Thanks for sharing your shots with us.

    Happy Pink Saturday to you...

God has put a spirit of hope in you that with all the devastation you found a magnificent speciman He created in a cherry blossom, they may not last long, but don't think for one moment tme memory will not linger on forever. You have truly touched me tonight and I pray for all of you. Blessings Terri

  3. Hi Chloe Patricia,

    It is my dream to visit for Cherry Blossom viewing one day. It must be amazing to see in real life.

    I am glad that help is arriving for those that need it. I am glad there was no new tsunami this time.

    Stay Genki!
