Hi everyone!

Temperatures were a little warmer today so I had a Starbucks and lunch with my husband.  After he went to work, I went to Yushima Tenmangu.  Now it's 梅 season (plum blossoms).  Unlike さくら (cherry blossoms), 梅 last only a short time usually mid-February to March.  I almost always forget about 梅 season because it's not a prevalent as さくら but we have an 梅 tree at work, so I knew it was time to get out and see some 梅。

 梅 flowers are really beautiful and if you're in Tokyo around this time, you should check them out.
