Sakura

The view from my back porch....Mt. Fuji.  - Stacey, ESL teacher, Shizuoka, Japan

 Stacy, a native North Carolinian, has spent the last several years teaching English overseas.  She's worked in Vietnam, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and now, Japan.
 
Here are some images she took on a day outing in Shizuoka, Japan, admiring the cherry tree blossoms.
 
In Japan, the flowering cherry tree, or "Sakura," is an exalted flowering plant. The beauty of the cherry blossom is a potent symbol equated with the evanescence of human life and epitomizes the transformation of Japanese culture throughout the ages.  - Source
