Time goes by so fast! Not so long ago I wished you a happy new year, and it’s already April (almost May)! Sorry to have kept you waiting..
Spring was strange this year in Kyoto, unusually cold and rainy. Unfortunately, it was raining on my days off, so I was able to snap only a few sakura photos on my way to work or back, like this one of yaezakura (multi-layered cherry blossoms) near the small temple of Yasaka Koshin-do :
