We have visitors next month, and I seem to have promised them flowers. So we took a trip to Engakuji (in Kita-Kamakura) to evaluate the ume blossom status.
One or two ume trees are in full bloom. The little birds looked to be drinking the nectar. Usually I find them impossible to photograph, but this time they were so intent on their breakfast that I could get quite close.
However, most of the trees still only have tiny buds, and a few are half out...
The dragons are looking quite hungry...
All in all it is looking quite promising.
