Cherry blossoms, or sakura, are a big deal in Japan. So big that the news has a special weather segment on every night when cherry blossom season starts so you know when they will be in bloom. I think that plum blossoms, or ume, are equally as beautiful, and we were in Japan during prime ume viewing. I practiced using my digital macro setting. A lot. Here are some of my favorites–please vote on which one I should frame (if any)!

    2, 4, and 5. Groups of three always look great on a wall. You need a whole “Ume Period”. Haha.

    We have a plum in our yard. Can’t wait till it starts blossoming again.

    I vote for #5. I don’t know what macro settings are, but I have a feeling that I should go find out. Your photos turned out great!

    #5 or #6, but I think #5 is best.
