October Cherry

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 13 January 2020 in Plant & Nature.

The castle has cherry trees in its garden. I found them blooming in December. This kind of cherry, 十月桜 Jugatsu-Sakura, literally October Cherry, blooms twice in October and April. It seems that the blossoms bloomed in October still remained in December.

It's a warm year even here. This blossoms are very early. But a pretty motive for an image indeed.

@Ralf Kesper: Not early. This kind of cherry blooms even when it is cold.
