All the Yoshino cherry trees in my hometown have bloomed. Yoshino cherry was produced by grafting in Edo, which is now called Tokyo, in the middle of 19th century. Consequently, all the Yoshino cherry in the world have the same DNA and they'll bloom almost on the same day if the climate is alike. Today was the day for cherry-viewing with a bright sky. My wife and I took our parents for a picnic to the archaeological park, which is ten minutes' walk from my house.
However, the weather man says, "Tomorrow will be windy, and the cherry blossom will scatter." Today was the last opportunity to enjoy viewing cherry trees.
