Gorgeous, super manicured bamboo hedge in front of Nezu Museum

根津美術館前の歩道にある竹の生け垣は素敵だと思います。
On the sidewalk in front of the Nezu Museum, this bamboo hedge has been manicured to  perfection. I am always excited to walk or bike by there.

Night view and fallen petals conclude cherry blossom season

花見の季節は終わり、最後の夜の花びらの写真です。

I love this multi-petal and super-pink cherry tree growing outside my apartment building. At night, it is magical against the clouds and electric power lines. I like that the tree has been trimmed into a lollipop shape. The sight of the petals pooling up in the gutter is also strangely captivating: so pink and so transient.

Fortunately, once cherry trees have finished blooming, there is a burst of spring flowers: azalea, dogwood, lilac, iris, jasmine, and soon roses.
