Japanese Gardens in the Spring

The effervescent sakura, or cherry blossoms. Many were taken in two much-loved temples near my old apartment in Kita-Kogane, Chiba Prefecture; Hondoji and Tozenji. Here today, gone tommorow, they speak of the beauty of youth, easily lost, yet ever returning anew. More recent photos were taken in various other places where the sakura bloom.

On and off, these photos were taken over the last twelve years.
