“Welcome Home”
Mother Nature prepares this welcome just for us 🙂

After returning last night from a short trip to Imabari, I got a good night's sleep and slept in late, and awoke to a warm, beautiful day and the cherry blossoms further on their way toward full bloom.

The first blossoms appeared a bit more than a week ago, and soon they started appearing in droves, and after three days away, they're maybe halfway toward full bloom.

The weekend should be fantastic!
