Hanami 2013

Last weekend was absolutely beautiful, and the sakura have finally bloomed, so we went hanami at the Memphis Botanic Garden. My friend Heidi got the opportunity to wear her new pink kimono. She's 6 feet tall, so we aren't able to make an ohashori, but it was pretty nonetheless. My sister let me dress her, and she did things a little Western style by wearing white strappy sandals and a big pink floppy hat! ^_^ Josh also wore kimono - his pale blue kimono with hakama. I wore my black sakura houmongi to blend in with the trees XD. We had a picnic in the pavillion and even had some onlookers take some photos of us! We had a great time!

    This hanami looks very fun. All of you wear kimono perfectly.

    You look so nice in your houmongi.
