April.7th Drive. part 3 (Dam and Peach Tree):

 今富ダム: Imadomi Dam *
This Imadomi Dam located in our city was the last place of our one day spring drive. 
I was happy to see this place for the first time.  How lucky and really appreciate my husband took detour this place as well. The dam looked beautiful with peach blooms in front of it.  Surly, it was a day of 'feast for my eyes' with pretty flowers; 

  I enjoyed seeing varieties of peach blossoms for the first time as well♪
My husband watching me taking pictures, checking if I was cautious about the traffic :-)  


  Opposite side of the dam;  I think this is the met with floats for stopping the litters.
This white cherry blooms were on the right side of the picture above.

*Extra; I'll post this part to 'Etymology Page'*
We call 'feast for the eyes', '目の保養. me-no-hoyo' in Japanese. It literary means 'recuperation for one's eye's'.  It sounds funny usage as it doesn't mean eye's physical health. Actually, referring for the things which nourish our spirits like seeing beautiful scenery or art works.  I found it interesting that the word 'feast' is used in the English proverb.

Thank you very much for stopping by; I always appreciate your sweet visits;
Yesterday I was out all day, I will See You in the afternoon,my friends♪

Very impressive dam and beautiful blossoms.

I so agree this was a "feast" for the eyes. Those Peach Blossoms are just delightful.

The saying makes perfect sense in both languages. Getting out in nature is how I heal my spirit (through my eyes) so 'recuperation' would be a perfect description. But 'feast' certainly works for what your beautiful trees provide for my eyes -- they are absolutely fantastic.

You arrange your flower pictures so beautifully. Each one is a work of art.
