Ume ✿ Sakura

✿ ❀ ✿ Spring has come ✿ ❀
Plum (Ume in Japanese) in full bloom in Berkeley right now.
I love the sweet and girly color and aroma of plum blossom.  ♥♥♥

 Voila, Momoca style plum blossom Ikebana.  

I let Plum blossom float in water.  
I made this ceramic bowl about 5 years ago.

Cherry (Sakura in Japanese) has come into bloom.  

Little Japanese lesson ;

Plum  = Ume
Cherry = Sakura
Peach = Momo

Momo = peach 桃  
Ca = blossom 花
Momoca = Peach blossom  桃花

It's been really warm here in Berkeley lately !!  
I love it.
