Flowering was not good this year.

The flowers opened late and most of the trees only have a few on its branches.  The recent rains even caused some of the petals to fall on the ground.

But some of the trees have many flowers.

There were also sakura trees beside the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Mall.

There were more flowers here ...

... and the lighting was very good to take pictures.
