Fallen Cherry Blossoms

Back in April the cherry tree at our apartment block was blooming. I promised then to post some pictures about the ocean of fallen blossoms however I kind of missed the peak time so there wasn’t much left when I actually took few pictures. Now its just three months after I promised this post so it is not that bad I think. Here the promised pictures including my Chinese mother-in-law and of course Nathan.

rand1First of all here is Nathan enjoying is favorite carrying position back then. As you can guess it is not really the most comfortable position for the person holding this little demon. What’s more is that Nathan himself would get exhausted after a short time and be pretty unhappy about it as he would prefer to stand the entire time. The photo has been taken just outside the building and is one of the few occasions that my wife tried her luck with my camera.


rand2The next picture is something I call “OMG Granny is holding me!”. From Nathan’s facial expression you can see that he is pretty surprised about in whose arms he has ended up. MIL is of course very happy about it and in the following few seconds Nathan’s mood would swing from surprised, to scared to panicking, trying his best to get away from her. No matter what he tried to get out she didn’t let him go…sadly I was not allowed to post those pictures.


Have you ever walked through an ocean of cherry blossoms?

Be sure to follow me also on Facebook and on Twitter as I will post there occasionally pictures which do not find their way into my blog posts.

  1. It looks so beautiful! I have a big cherry tree in my courtyard too, but the blossoms are almost white. When they fall down it looks like it’s snowing. But the pink ones on your pictures look like candy cotton. Nathan’s looking like he’s walking on candy cotton clouds ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. We have a place here in Toronto called High Park where thousands and thousands of people come out every spring to check out the cherry blossoms blooming, and the falling petals. Awesome you got to bring your baby boy along for this experience!

  3. Someday I hope to walk through a sea of fallen cherry blossoms…someday ๐Ÿ™‚

    Haha, no photos of MIL and sad Nathan. Awww, I bet it’s very cute anyway ๐Ÿ˜€ Nathan’s favourite carrying position does look strenuous. I’m sure MIL can’t manage that…

    1. I am the only one (and my dad) who can carry Nathan like that but by now he changed his preferences again. Now he loves to be carried like a little monkey or koala (legs around my hips, hands holding on my shirt or neck and my hands under his butt :D)

  4. Wow! That is really a lot of fallen blossoms all in one place! And they are much pinker than the ones we get here in Seoul. Ours are a very, very light, silvery pink. Lol, Nathan’s preferred carrying position is hilarious. Looks like quite the ab workout for him!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Well I don’t think that they are originally from Japan but that the ‘hype’ about the blossoms just started from there. The cherry trees here also got besides these wonderful blossoms also the eatable cherries ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Edible cherries? Actual cherry trees rather than sakura, then?

        >I donโ€™t think that they are originally from Japan

        Such words would be blasphemy here!

  5. I would have loved to see Nathan’s struggle to escape MIL:) Cherry blossoms are so beautiful. Not sure whether I prefer the blossoms on the tree or blowing in the wind like pink snow flakes.
