Plum Blossom

First plum blossom by Bart Miller, Tokyo 2014
Japan’s most famous blossom is, of course, the cherry. But I think most people have a soft spot for the lovely pink plums that bloom about a month earlier.
The cherry blossoms celebrate the arrival of Spring. The plum blossoms are the invitation.
Here’s a photo I shot at our neighborhood park while playing with my son of the first plum blossom I’ve seen this year.
