It’s been almost a year now since my last post. A lot has definitely happened to me since then, but it is only after learning such spectacular news the other day did it brought me back here. The excitement cannot be contained!
Cherry Blossoms… how do I even begin to explain cherry blossoms? – Cherry blossoms is one of my favorite things in this whole, wide world. And one of the best ever of God’s creation!
According to an article I’ve read, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of sisterhood ties between Japan’s Kochi prefecture and the Benguet province, a first-ever Sakura Park will finally bloom in Atok, Benguet – a cool northern part of the Philippines. Over 30 cherry blossom trees and other tree species were already planted, with the cherry blossoms expected to blossom in 3 years time.
That’s quite a long time, but who cares? I have been waiting my entire life to tick it off my bucket list after all (to see cherry blossoms up close). What’re three years anyway? I might even hop off a plane to Japan before the 3 years is up if I can help it. 😀
“The last of the cherry blossom. On the tree, it turns ever more perfect. And when it’s perfect, it falls. And then of course once it hits the ground it gets all mushed up. So it’s only absolutely perfect when it’s falling through the air, this way and that, for the briefest time!.!.!.” — David Mitchell
