We have an enormous ornamental cherry tree in our back yard. Once a year in the spring it explodes into millions of fluffy pink blossoms, and is quite breathtaking, at least until the blossoms rain all over the yard and turn brown before we've had a chance to sweep and rake them up.
Every year, when the tree blossoms, we celebrate the Japanese festival of Sakura with a dinner party for our Japanese friends. This year we had Emiri with Imran, and Yuka with Vincent.
We also surprised Emiri with a birthday-tiramisu.
For the third year in a row, the weather was inappropriate for dining outdoors under the cherry tree, so we had to bring the party inside by decorating the entire apartment with vases of blossoms.
