A feature of the 2013 spring season in Tokyo is that as soon as the blossom came out, so did the clouds. The past week has been mostly gloomy skies, the cityscape brightened only by mainly cherry blossom and plum blossom.
But our pot plants have helped brighten things around the apartment. Now in our fifth year here, they are blooming like never before, perhaps a sign of having thoroughly acclimatized to their environment following their move here in 2009.
Featured above is the miniature apple tree beside our door, which is flowering the most prolifically it ever has, and which adds that much more cheer to heading out to work every morning here in Tokyo.
