Today was the spring equinox. It was a holiday for Little Brother and Papa. Big Sister graduated from junior high yesterday and will start high school the first week in April. So she was off anyway. The sakura or cherry blossoms will probably be finished by the time school starts again. Today, they were still tight in the bud. They will bloom here in Tokyo sometime in the next two weeks.
