Ume 梅

I found ume tree today. Ume (Japanese apricot) is a flower and blooming now. The bloom is about 30 % . A flower is very small, however, it is very beautiful.
Sakura is very famous for Japanese flower. Ume is modester than Sakura. The color is white and pink. We can use the fruit as liquor "Ume shu". Also we eat the fruit as traditional preserved food. This is Umeboshi. It is very sour and unique taste. I want to mention Umeboshi some day.

I took some photos. I hope you enjoy beautiful flower.
