Is it a mist, or clouds?

The cherry blossoms are in bloom! :) I went for a walk around my neighborhood yesterday and stopped by Children's Grand Park, where there's this one pathway that is lined with gorgeous blossoms. This is one of my favorite things about Spring in Korea.

I had plans to hit the Yeoido park today with some friends to see the cherry blossoms there, but the sky is so overcast that I think we're gonna postpone it for now. Gotta wait for sunny blue skies to get the full experience! :) So instead, we're gonna visit a cat cafe. hehe. Furry times up ahead.

Here's a Japanese poem about cherry blossoms ("Sakura, Sakura"), translated in English:

Cherry Blossoms, Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Blanketing the countryside,
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the morning sun.
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Flowers in full bloom.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Across the Spring sky,
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the air.
Come now, come,
Let’s look, at last!
