In Japan, Plum trees start blooming at the beginning of February.
They decorate the cold sky with reddish pink and white flowers.
I always feel that spring is near us...
My friend from Japan has arrived here to study last week and I visited her.
She gave a piece of dried umeboshi, sour plum, to chew on while driving.
As soon as I tasted the sweet and sour juice in my mouth, I remembered the flowers of plume blooming this season.
It was a nice sense of memory I had.
