Of Cherry Blossoms

The Taj Mansingh Hotel in Delhi had a Japanese food festival going on. They left a lovely little card about the festival in the guest rooms. I could not be bothered about the Fancy chef so and so who had come to the Taj for this festival etc but instead I fell in love with the imagery on the card about the festival. So i quickly scanned it to put it down here -

Thinking of the cherry blossoms, I remembered this painting I once saw on www.saffronart.com by an artist called Shabnam Mehra called 'Blossom'. I wondered if the artist got a chance to capture this in Japan. Had she made a trip over in perfect timing in April when the weather was crisp and yet with some sunshine in Tokyo. Did she head to the area where you could see the blossoms? If so, I am so terribly jealous!

I love the cherry combine with chocolate or with any recipe, they are simple delicous. That is why This blogs catch my attention and i think it is very helpful, i am very curious to know different way to prepare the cherry. Actually i was looking for information about how to buy viagra by internet and i found this blog. Absolutely interesting. I must to say all this information is really amazing.
