Happy Friday: Hanami

Stuck, as we are, in the depths of winter it’s nice to think about the advent of Spring. My heart lifts as soon as I see the first sign of blossom on the trees, and I would dearly love to go to Japan (yes, more Japanorama!) for Hanami – literally “cherry blossom viewing”:

Traditionally people meet up during the festival and have picnics under the blossom. The picnics might include special sweet biscuits like these:

How pretty? As there’s no way I’ll be going to Japan this year, maybe I’ll introduce my own version of Hanami here instead!
