Cherry Blossom Time in Robertson

Every year it happens, 
and every year I marvel at the beauty of these blossoms.

I know the Japanese community in Australia 
share my enthusiasm for our humble "Cherry Blossom Time".

If you have friends with Japanese connections,
please copy the following link and email it to them.

It is not quite the true Japanese  Hanami,  
but it is as good as we get, here.
Cherry Blossoms in Robertson, NSW
So, every year I like to publish a reminder that yes,
it is about to happen again.

Where: Hoddle Street, (Illawarra Highway) Robertson NSW.
(A Google Map is linked above)

Cherry Trees were starting to flower on Monday, 
ready for their peak on the long weekend .
Cherry Trees line the main street in Robertson.
 As the blossoms fall, there will then be the phenomenon of "pink snow"
as the blossoms fall to the roadway, 
and swirl around in the breeze.

Such transient beauty
is the very essence of the attraction of this seasonal event.
