On the cusp of spring

It is gradually turning into spring in Tokyo. New plants are beginning to sprout en masse, and I can feel a new energy filling the air. For the Japanese people, spring is usually associated with cherry blossoms, but right now we are still enjoying plum blossoms. Ume, plum has a fresh and sweet scent  than cherry blossoms. In addition, compared to cherry blossoms, ume was often planted in castles and fortless area in Japan because its fruits are edible. I hope this is the year that COVID-19 will be  over and the war is over so quickly, and then we can enjoy Hanami (cherry blossom viewing party) in peace!
