Osaka: Plum Blossom 2014

Everyone loves cherry blossom (sakura), but what about plum blossom (ume)?! I love seeing plum blossom as its a sure sign of spring beginning and better weather ahead!

In Osaka you can see lots of plum blossom in Osaka Castle Park. We visited a few weeks ago (11th Feb) and a few early blooming species had started to blossom.

BBQ and last of the sakura

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, I went back to Osaka Castle with a BBQ!

Sadly it rained really heavy Saturday night and the wind was howling so most of the beautiful blossom had been washed away.

It didn’t stop people enjoying the sunshine and what was left of the sakura though!
