Sakura, Round 2 Pink Heaven!!!!

Where did I leave off on this blog?  Oh yes!  Pink heaven.  Wow!  That seems like forever ago.  But I have so enjoyed looking at these beautiful pink pictures. 
The second variety of sakura blooms a few weeks after the first.  It's my favorite: more complex blossoms and pinker.  Enjoy these pictures of pink heaven:

We actually went to this little park in Tsuruoka twice as the lighting wasn't great the first day for pictures. 

It was just the perfect spring day.  We then walked over to take a picture of this.  People fly these on and before boys day- May 3rd.  The top one represents a waterfall and then below that they put on as many fish as they have boys in the family.  It is fun to drive around Japan and see the fish flying.
