A hand painted postcard.
In days when our eyes are nailed to tablets and iPhones, when email has canceled our letters and stamps, only a few lucky persons are still enjoying the fun of writing actual postcards.
Hanami, in Japan, is the traditional custom of observing and enjoying the flowers bloom, mainly sakura (cherry tree) and ume (plum tree).
This is my personal tribute to hanami, in the shape of a postcard.
