My friends have been taking me out to the Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni a lot lately to catch all the stages of flowers blooming near the river. The trees don’t bloom all perfectly at the same time, so even though many of the plum blossoms were on their way out when I came, there were a few plants that were perfectly blooming and ready to be photographed :)
These red flowers were blooming over where you can see the (caged) shirohebi, or white snakes. I still haven’t been to see those white snakes…the shirohebi stuffed animal at the store is cute, though.
The fallen blossoms on the bright spring grass are beautiful, too! We went back on Easter to get pictures of the fallen cherry blossoms…but that will have to wait for another day :)
