Cherry Blossoms Part 3 – Half Bloom

In my previous post, I included some pictures of the cherry blossoms as they were just starting to bloom. Once again, the seven stages of cherry blossoms, according to Yahoo Japan,  are bud (tsubomi つぼみ), beginning to bloom (sakihajime 咲き始め), half bloomed (gobunsaki 5分咲き), 70 percent bloomed (nanabunsaki 7分咲き), full bloom (mankai 満開), beginning to fall (chirihajime 散り始め), and completely gone (hazakura 葉桜).

These pictures are of roughly half-bloomed cherry blossoms (sakura).

half bloomed. More like...some of them have bloomed and some are being stubborn.

  2. Lets break the phrase down go means five. bu means part. saki -zaki means bloom or blossom.There are several Japanese websites that have translated the phrase as half bloom or half bloomed but such a phrase is ambiguous half of the trees are in full bloom and half of the trees are not all the blossoms are in half bloom or half of the blossoms on each tree are in full bloom and the other half are not.Horticulturists working for the in Washington D.C. For example The cherry blossoms are in full bloom today.The cherry blossoms are at their peak today.The cherry blossoms will be in full bloom this weekend.The cherry blossoms will be at their peak this weekend.The cherry trees have only partially blossomed so far.The cherry trees are almost in full bloom.The cherry trees are nearly in full bloom.Only half of the buds or so have blossomed.Only half of the blossoms or so are in full bloom.The cherry trees havent fully bloomed yet.The cherry blossoms havent fully blossomed yet.I found one that has pictures of the varying degrees of cherry blossom in excruciating detail.
