Cherry blossoms

Here in Utsunomiya, now it's the middle of cherry blossoms season. I don't know why Japanese people love cherry blossoms, but I love cherry blossoms.
When our daughters lived with us, we would often go on a picnic to see cherry blossoms with lunch boxes in this season. Since they left Utunomiya, Yuki and I have gone to see cherry blossoms in HACHIMANYAMA park. It is one of our annual events. (Seeing colorful leaves in fall is also one of them.)

In the early morning of last Sunday we went to see them. We were lucky because we could see them before it started to rain.
We saw cherry blossoms quickly (because it was cold, and we were hungry), then we went to a good restaurant to have breakfast.  The restaurant is a little bit expensive, but on Sundays they serve breakfast at a reasonable price.

Bread is better than the songs of birds.
