A midseason medley

The Yomiuri Shimbun

The Yomiuri ShimbunShiki-zakura trees, a type of early-flowering cherry tree, are at their prime amid autumnal red leaves on a mountain slope in the Obara district in Toyota, Aichi Prefecture. They bloom in spring and autumn and can be seen until early December. Local residents continue planting the trees, as shiki-zakura was designated in 1978 as the tree of the former village of Obara.Speech
