I have fond memories of the sakura, in Japan the cherry blossom festivals mark the time of spring as the trees burst forth their beauty. The festivals have been observed for so long that they've become part of the culture, ingrained in their history. Sakura Blossoms by ~ArdiRa is such a beautiful reminder of that culture, the kimono and stone carved walkway helps give this a wonderful, timeless quality.

This is awesome :D it really conveys the girls feelings! She looks happy, i sort of feel that the person she is looking at is someone she trusts, a lover, a friend? Its like we are looking at her through the eyes of someone else :D
