Cherry blossoms and camellia

This is a photograph that I took on March 25. March of this year was unusually cold and I saw only a few buds on that day. These are some small buds that started to open on overhead branch.
Now it's April, but it is not warm enough for cherry blossoms to bloom.
But the strong wind of storm has calmed down. TV news reported that cherry blossoms started to full-bloom in some areas.
I'll go to see them within some days.

These are camellia that I took on the same day. They come to end when cherry blossoms become full-bloom.
These two camellia are a little different from a typical camellia.
