Mankai 2021

It’s basically mankai (full bloom) in my neighborhood. Delle took a beautiful picture of sakura at the San Francisco Arboretum using portrait mode on her iPhone. So I decided to try the same thing using my iPhone during today’s walk with Pao. I think it turned out well!

Sakura in the afternoon

According to NHK, the sakura are now in full bloom in Tokyo. I’m not sure that’s completely true in my neighborhood, but most of the cherry trees are in bloom. And it was beautiful weather during this afternoon’s walk.

These women seem to like Pao and played with him for a while
Can you see the afternoon moon?
One of these women gave Pao some water. After drinking a little bit he tipped over the bowl and decided to steal it. I had to bribe him with a snack to get the bowl back.
