Two years ago today I was in Japan waiting for the Ume (Mume in the USA) to bloom. Finally, in the last week, I was able to enjoy this lovely walk through an iconic Japanese scene.
From their website: “Atami Plum Garden, famous for Japan’s earliest plum blossoms and latest autumn leaves since it was opened in 1886. It is the site of 454 trees of 60 species including a ancient plum tree more than 100 years old. You can enjoy it year round, not just in the plum blossom season.”
