Step 2: Unpack your picnic lunch Unpack your picnic lunch and enjoy your meal with friends while viewing the cherry blossoms. Step 3: Look at the cherry blossoms Observe the blossoms from a distance and up close. From far away, the blossoms resemble clouds; viewed more closely, the delicate structures of the individual blossoms come into view. Step 4: Observe the color of the blossoms Observe the color of the blossoms. Most cherry trees produce light pink to pure white blossoms, but some blossoms are dark pink or slightly yellow. Tip The color of some cherry blossoms may change while they are in bloom. Step 5: Observe the leaves Observe the leaves, if any, on the trees. On early blooming trees they may not appear until after all the blossoms have opened. With late blooming trees, they tend to appear before the blossoms. Did You Know? In Japan, the fleeting beauty of the cherry blossoms is considered symbolic of the brevity of life and the frailty of existence.
