Kyoto cherry blossoms blooming five months early
Today on a ride from Kyoto to Osaka Castle with Paul Barr, early on the trip while still in Kyoto we came across some cherry blossoms that had apparently gotten confused by the cold spell in October followed by a warm spell earlier this month... they seem to be blooming five months early!

at least I think it's cherry; frankly, to my untrained eyes,
it could just as easily be peach or plum, but the bark look like cherry
Whatever they were, they were pretty and out of place.
I made a short video of the blossoms, amid a ridiculous wind.
