Every year, I have a ritual: after seeing the first cherry blossoms, I put on my cherry blossom pin and I don’t take it off until the last blossoms have fallen (which is usually mid-May). It’s just my way of celebrating spring.
January is probably the earliest time I ever wore the pin. It’s really nice to have a touch of color on my dark coat.
Let’s hope more blossoms will come soon. The fog seems to have taken over the city these days.
