Spring is Here!

We had such a warm winter this year that I was sure the cherry blossoms would come out early. Then suddenly, in the middle of March, it got much colder. The high temperature went below 10 degrees and the low temperature went below 1 degree in Nagoya. It was winter again! We hardly saw the sun, and it kept on raining. Then, a week ago, the sun finally came out. The temperature went above 20 degrees. This is the kind of weather cherry trees were waiting for. They started blooming, and people started coming out for picnics. Spring is here at last!
