Momo (peach blossoms)

>> Saturday, April 24, 2010

Cherry blossoms (Sakura), Plum blossoms (Ume) and Peach blossoms (Momo) might look all the same but they are different in the shape of their petals as well as the number. These are peach blossoms they have more petals in layers compared to plum and cherry blossoms which have 5 each.

A peach tree in bloom, we're still waiting for its fruits, though I can't be sure if they are the type that bears fruit.

I am always envious of trees that bloom this profusely. I have not seen any like them in Manila, and they're so gorgeous!

Welcome to the CDP community, Anna! About the only thing I know about Narita is that the airport for Tokyo is there. ;) So I'm definitely looking forward to learning more about it through your eyes.

Beautiful peach trees, Anna! I always have to look close at the flowers to tell the difference between the peach and plum. The blossoms are so pretty.

Hello Anna, Such a profusion of blossoming trees! I was in Narita once on my way to China and later toured Japan for a week.
