I took another bike ride along the Nakagawa today. It was still a bit cold, but today I went without a jacket for the first time this year. After about 10 minutes of cycling I felt warm enough.
As you can see, the cherry blossoms are still not in bloom. Except, in one tree I saw some buds trying really hard to bloom, with just a peak of pink coming out. The clouds looked nice, and sort of dreamy.
I think all the action is going to take place over the next two weeks.
