Saku Blossom Festival..



Sunday was the perfect spring day to visit the Saku Blossom Festival at the S&R Orchards in Walliston. We arrived early at 8am to avoid the many thousands of visitors who descend on the festival each year only to find that they had beaten us to it :) The trees look so pretty when in flower that it's twicky to stop clicking and even harder to pick a handful to show 🌸


As always there are plenty of props for photo ops, the bridge below was particularly popular.. at times it was like a 'how many people can fit on one small bridge' situation :) It's a fun day out for families with many activities plus lots of diverse food choices, you can even hire a kimono for above mentioned photo ops.. I tried to convince Aimee but she wasn't playing :) We didn't stay that long.. there were other fish to fry 🌷 Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  11. That is true beauty, Grace, you have me awing here all over.
    My Dad was in Japan once and brought kimonos for all of us. I am with Aimee - you make a fool of yourself with those tiny steps that are all you can do! ;-) I had to "go" to school with that! Face painted white, too. Did I mention I hate carnival?
