Flower festival in Yokohama

This weekend, I went to a flower festival in Yokohama, about 30 minutes walk from my apartment.
Sakura Cherry blossoms
It was a very sunny day and there were some Sakura blossoms still. Maybe it's the last weekend when we can see Sakura blossoms in Yokohama.

There were another beautiful pink flowers on the way. I don't know how to call them in English...

The festival was held in the park of Yokohama Red-brick Warehouse, by the sea.
In the warehouse, there are lots of shops and restaurants. It's beautiful space for shopping and eating, but a little expensive.

So I enjoyed only flowers.
Also, many people enjoyed them. Sitting by the flowers and drinking bottled juices instead of expensive restaurants.

My favorite flower is this!

After the festival, we went a donut shop near the warehouse, and took a rest with delicious Hawaiian donuts.

It was very beautiful weekend for me.
But after 4 hours walk, we got too tired and slept a lot.

The second picture of a tree is one of my very favorites -- pink dogwood. Dogwood trees are very popular in the South of the U.S.
