It's Cherry Blossom Time in Japan
Cherry blossom can be viewed in Japan from January to June depending on the region, but in the majority of areas the trees flower between March and May. The Japanese people hold cherry blossom festivals during this time and they are hugely popular social occasions with places to put down your picnic blanket often claimed before dawn. In fact, our man in Japan, Shunichi, had been to a Hanami party with some old school friends just the night before we got there.
The Cherry trees in the Tokyo area were at their best when we arrived in Japan for our Spring selection trip and here in Newcastle there are signs of Spring too. Daffodils are blooming round about and the sun has made a welcome return. We nearly had 17º the other day !!
We have our first shipment of babies and larger Koi in the show ponds for a couple of weeks and they have settled brilliantly and are eating us out of house & home.
After all the rain last year and a 6 month long, cold, snowy Winter here's hoping for a long, warm, sunny Summer and best wishes to you all for a fantastic Koi keeping season.
