Hi, Nekobuchi here 😊 It seems the temperature is getting warm gradually since last a few days ago. Especially it was so hot that even indoor I was hot this afternoon, I would like to talk about wheather in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Today’s max temperature was 27 degree, and it’s a bit humid. (34 percent humidity)
I can’t believe that just 10 days ago it was snowing so hard😰
And here’s the photo I just took
People I see on the street still keep wearing long sleeve shirt or even jacket, but today there are pretty many people with short sleeves than people with winter clothes on. Though, there are still… especially elderly people. I wonder they are not hot..😅😅😅
Talking about warm temperature, it reminds me spring… and …
Cherry blossom! Sakura!
Since early April, I’ve kept my eye on cherry blossom tree in
Chiune Sugihara park
The man who’s on the stone monument is Chiune Sugihara. To explain about him briefly,
he was Japanese diplomat working in former Russian territory (the place is now Kaunas, Lithuania) around the time of WWII. He saved many Jewish people by issuing Visa and even now he’s a person as linking bridge for Japan with Lithuania.
So, Chiune’s park is the only place that you can see Sakura in Lithuania(the memorial park is also in Kaunas)
This photo is taken 20th April. Still buds😌
22th April. The tip of the twigs look slightly pink…ish… 🤔❓
When I visited the park 30th April, I found plum blossoms blooming in the park 😄
Those were so adorable😊😊 Just to see them blooming there were many people visiting the park.
on the same day, I saw cherry still not blooming…
Hm? Scattering…? Though i don’t see any petals fallen, still on the way blooming? There were dolls hanged look alike “teru teru bouzu) in Japan 😳
We make this doll to wish the weather become sunny(e.g. you hang it the day before school trip, sports day, or events that you are looking forward to)
So I guess some people hung dolls to wish the cherry bloom soon?
And then, last week 12th May
… W H A T ? ?
It become completely green… well there are only leaves and buds had gone 😱😱😱😱😱 Did I miss??!
I was really excited to see Cherry blossoming, but after all… what a pitty 😢
Thank you for reading 🙂
