Green Passion plant nursery – which I visited yesterday – has beautiful, healthy plants and knowledgable owners who speak French and English.
It’s located on Avenue du Lac Kivu in Kigali, Rwanda.

There’s a good article on the 2014 cherry blossom viewing (hanami) in Tokyo — which starts this week — here.
The arrival of the cherry blossom is keenly anticipated, with round-the-clock news reports providing updates on exactly where and when the fabled flowers will appear alongside all manner of sakura-themed promotions. Advertisements currently on display in the Tokyo Metro suggest that drinking Kirin beer will enhance the hanami experience, and should you be feeling peckish, McDonald’s has helpfully introduced a “cherry blossom burger”, complete with “pink buns”.
