Fact of the Day: Sakura Flower of Japan

Japanese sakura flowers (cherry blossoms) are so popular in Japan that it is unofficially (along with the chrysanthemum) the national flower of Japan. 


  1. They are beautiful and make such an impact when planted en masse.

  2. The significance of the cherry blossom tree
    in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years.
    In their country, the cherry blossom represents
    the fragility and the beauty of life.
    It's a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly
    beautiful but that it is also tragically short....

  3. They are quite lovely indeed. Hugs and Happy Friday! RO

  4. And when they bloom in the Spring, everyone is happy and goes on a picnic under the trees.
