People kinda seem to forget just about the Sakura Trees after the cherry blossom season has ended. I know I’m guilty of it. It’s kind of understandable though, right? After the initial blossoms have fallen/blown away, it’s a completely different looking tree altogether. The drifting, fluttering, soft-pink blossoms make way for much darker, far less eye-catching, red petals with deep green leaves. The Sakura tree goes from being the Belle of the Ball, during those two weeks in early spring, back to just a regular tree in late spring and summer. I really wish that cherry blossoms lasted longer than they do, but I think that’s part of their appeal: short, sweet, breathtaking.
