An Ume Tree

After taking some photos of hijiri-bridge, I strolled around there.
And I was thinking where I should go.
When I walked through a little park I found a ume tree(Japanese apricot).
You can see Nicolai cathedral under those branchs of the tree in this photo.

I looked the tree for a while.
Those blossoms were about to bloom.
And then, the ume tree told me where I should go.
So my heart was set.
I decided to visit "Yushima Tenjin" that is a shinto shrin.
I had to leave ochanomizu, but it was not so far.

I will post new series (yushima tenjin) in several days.
Key words are "study" and "ume".
Stay tuned!!

It looks similar to some trees around here in Brookville, Ohio where I live.

Another tree that blossoms in winter? How lucky you are! Looking forward to your new series.

It seems pretty early for blossom. Japanese apricots, sounds nice.

And the question is :"why did the ume tree choose that destination for you, and not another one?"...:-))
