Some things are just out of our control, and whether the Sakura bloom in full each year at Japan House is one of those things. The extreme weather highs and lows this winter kept the buds from being able to form as usual. It’s definitely a bummer, but it also doesn’t mean there’s no reason to spend some time vising the Japan House gardens this spring.
The weather is warm, but not too hot. The bugs aren’t out in full force yet, and I found other lovely blooming trees while I spent a moment there today. Just don’t delay…these flowers will also be fleeting! The magnolias were already shedding their petals.
Also, you might catch a glimpse of Doug Dog. I didn’t see him today, but it’s a goal in life.
