A few early bloomers in my neighborhood

Most cherry blossoms are not predicted to bloom until March 22nd though. The earliest on record. Every year they bloom earlier and earlier. When I first came to Japan they didn’t bloom until the first week of April.

Mt. Fuji this morning, from Hachioji

It’s just a few degrees above freezing this morning, and the sky is very clear. This is the view just before from Create Hall in Hachioji, where we have our volunteer classes on Sunday.
