Pic of the day – Cherry Blossom Tomato?

Our Japanese exchange student is supposed to arrive in a month. That is no time at all, especially with everything we need to do. So I have all things cleaning and all things Japanese on my mind. One of my favorite symbols in Japanese tradition is the Sakura, the cherry blossom. This small tomato looked so much like a Sakura. I had to take a pic of it. Something about that red on the green corn speaks to of both Iowa (my home) and Japan (his home). I hope that is a good sign. I am worried that we won’t be ready. Actually, things are a month behind schedule, and I don’t see how we possible could be ready in time. Sigh.
