Sakura Cats

I'm obsessed with cherry blossoms. Every year I try to take a trip to Brooklyn Botanic Garden to celebrate Hanami, the Japanese cultural tradition of viewing and cherishing each moment of the cherry blossom season. In 2009, I was fortunate enough to attend the National Cherry Blossom festival in Washington, D.C., and just last year, I achieved the dream of a lifetime by seeing the flowering cherries in bloom all around Japan.

This is the time of year when the beautiful blossoms start to bloom, and usher in the beginning of Spring. In celebration of this time of renewal, I'd like to share a Flickr find from user tanakawho, who has posted this amazing photo set featuring dozens of pictures of cats amongst the fleeting sakura. Check out a few of my favorite images below, and click here to see more!

Those are such pretty pictures of the cats and the cherry blossoms. Couldn't be anything prettier, that is for sure. All trees that are blossoming now are gorgeous. Our Dogwoods are beginning to bloom.

Weez SO jealous that you got to go to see the Sakura Festival in Japan! We remember the blossoms in Brooklyn's gorgeous garden. We actually where lucky that one of the gardners, many years ago let us release two of our Koi there. It's lovely to know we have family members in Brooklyn! Love these pics. <3
