Sakura flowers, Sakura trees (cherry blossoms) are very special to Japanese and we are all waiting for this season every year.  People go out and walk under trees, have some parties, festivals, sakura trees are lighted up at night more parties at night under sakura trees...  many sakura products, sakura-shaped products, sakura color, wrapping paper printed Sakura just for this time.   

It is getting warmer outside, sure, it is very tempting....

However, many people are forced to stay home and not allowed to go out to see Sakura this year.  Luckily we can still go out in our city but news on TV to show empty Sakura parks makes my heart ache.  

This is happening all over the world....
To people who cannot see Sakura outside.


Stay Safe! everybody, with LOVE

Wonderful, wonderful work dear Ryoko @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave.!! I love the sakura story that you shared. Thank you . I agree with you that this year is unlike any other in my memory. I'm hoping that things will calm down in time for you to return to the tradition of walking under the sakura trees, enjoying the warmer temperatures!! Hugs...❀️❀️

Cherry blossom time in Japan is so amazing! I have never visited but in Portland, OR where I once lived we have a similar celebration in down town where there are planted many of the Sakura Cherry trees. Absolutely gorgeous as are these cookies! 

I just googled Sakura in Portland, OR.  Many pretty photos came out, they are very gorgeous.   Thank you, @Artzy Sweets & Treats   I am very happy to see those beautiful photos.  A lot of men wear pale pink colored necktie during Sakura season, in addition to usual weather forecast  we have sakura forecast in Japan.
