Plum blossoms

Jeff and I went to the Shukkeien garden last weekend in Hiroshima.  This time of year, the plum trees are blooming.  Cherry blossom season is the one that gets all the hype in Japan but they like all of their blooming trees.  This garden has a small plum tree grove so we went down and checked it out this weekend.  The blossoms ranged from white to dark pink.  It was just nice to get out and enjoy being outside a bit.  It was cloudy but dry and a little warmer for a change.  Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day.

I love this little bird in the tree.  I watched him for a while.  It seems like the birds were actually eating the blossoms?
