Under the Cherry Blossom

Hanami, as witnessed yesterday at Brooklyn Botanical garden, is not just confined to Japan. The Cherry Esplanade was packed by early afternoon with people enjoying this custom. It actually looked a little odd to see so many people not on the lawn but jammed under the pink cloud of flowers - usually in the earlier days of warm weather, most people prefer to sit or lie directly in the sun. Some were engaged in conversation or absorbed in a book. Some were lost in in a private world of their own thoughts and daydreams. The modern variation were the cellphones and laptops and digital cameras. All were under the ancient spell of the the cherry blossoms.
