  1. Wow spectacular. I’m determined to see cherry trees in blossom one of these years. In the U.S., the talk is always of Washington, D.C., where Japan gave them flowering trees, over a hundred years ago. But I hear there’s cherry orchards in northern Wisconsin (!) on a peninsula in Lake Michigan, so maybe this year.


    1. I have a special liking for Mataura, an unlikely place for such beauty. Just down the end of that lane is a huge abattoir. Historically there’s been some other yuck places there too. Plus the railway running through. Yet the local community has great spirit and their efforts are really making a difference to their town. I admire their efforts!
