There was apparently exactly one cherry tree in Ueno Park today that was in bloom. It’s way too early for sakura blooming. But I saw this one today, surrounded by people taking photos.
If you click on the photos you can see them larger.
These were taken just before, while riding my bike along the Nakagawa. The moon was out, even though it was afternoon. I like the picture of the birds and moon behind the tree best.

It’s snowing. And it’s cold. This is the view from my bedroom window just before. The snow is still light, but seems to be getting heavier.
