Yamazakura is in full bloom / Asukayama Park, Oji, Kita ward
Saturday morning (20th. March), Lee and I went to Asukayama Park and found that Yamazakura was in full bloom.
Yamazakura is known as the early riser. As you can see, the color of petals is bright-white, and red colored young leaves appeared simultaneously, in contrast to the ordinary Sakura (Somei Yoshino), which has pink petals and no leaves when it blooms.
On Saturday morning, except for Yamazakura, Sakura (Somei Yoshino) trees had not bloomed yet.
I couldn't go there to watch them this morning but I suppose they have started to blossom today. I'm looking forward to taking the full-bloomed Sakura photos and post them on this blog next weekend.
