桜吹雪 (さくらふぶき)

Since we are in spring (although it may not feel like it in rainy London), I thought it would be appropriate to choose a word in relation to this season. So my word for today is 桜吹雪 sakura fubuki. I learnt this word recently and I absolutely love it! Can you guess what it means? Of course theres the word sakura 桜, meaning cherry blossom. The other two kanjis are the words for fuku 吹く, meaning to blow (wind etc.), and yuki 雪 meaning snow.  All that put together creates this wonderful word which simply means, a blizzard of falling cherry blossoms, or as my dictionary nicely put it: a flurry of falling cherry blossoms…

Do you know of any other sakura related words?
