Greeting and Sakura of Early Flowering;

*Two early flowering Cherry Blossom*
I happened to find these blossom late last week; first one along the Koto river,  second one near my husband's friend's shop when we went there to buy things for ladies in return for Valentine chocolate :-)

This pink one is called 'okamezakura'オカメザクラPrunus incamp cv. Okame).  
Flowers are characteristically downward-facing.

This white one is called 'sanbagawa-fuyu-zakura' (三波川冬桜)
Sanba river Winter Cherry  (my translation, couldn't find English name :-)
Hope these flower make you feel Spring is coming around the corner.

Thank you SO much for all of your sweet comments♡♡♡ My job 'at my late parents house' mostly to help fetching things for my husband who has handicap with his legs is finally over. Even though he still says same work left p;-) 
From tomorrow, I will be on a trip until Monday with my old friend. We were talking about this trip last year's Autumn to celebrate our becoming 60 years old. It had to be cancelled due to my sudden eye surgery.
So sorry for my long absence for my Dear friends. I wish I will start visiting you and linking sites in the middle of next week.

Wishing you all wonderful week and Night Night;
