Iju

So, at this time of year the forest of Okinawa erupts. Trees that had previously generally blended into the Jurassic Park vegetation that surrounds the university are sudden covered in beautiful creamy-white blossom. Blossom? Not sure that this is this best word, as for me, blossom frets and struts its life out over a short time. Iju  flowers? hang in for weeks. Anyway I love it and now pant in expectation  each year. The flowers herald in the rainy season and then the Summer.

This year the displays are particularly spectacular. Learned Tomomi informs me that this augurs a bad typhoon season. Hooray!
