アップル新本社は正面に桜並木ができる:Apple New Campus will have a path lined with Cherry Trees

In late February, around the time of Jobs’ birthday, the show will begin. Pink and white plum blossoms will appear on stands of trees at the center of Apple’s new campus, hinting at more to come.

A few weeks later cherry trees scattered strategically along walkways and at the edges of open glades will start to blossom.

2月下旬、ジョブズの誕生日の頃に、ショーは始まる。アップル新本社の空き地の真ん中にピンクと白の梅の花がほころび、さらなるショーの訪れを告げる。

何週間かあけて、今度は歩道沿いと空き地の外れに戦略的に植えた桜が、花開きだす。

The updated Apple's new HQ plan was revealed by the City of Cupertino and it shows a front path lined with banks of cherry trees.   It will take decades for them to grow the size of this tree shown above, but that'll be spectacular in early Spring every year.  In Japan, cherry blossoms, known as sakura, symbolize 'mono no aware,' the awareness of impermanence of life or the transience of all things.  In China, femine beauty.

アップルがクパティーノ市に提出した新本社建設事業計画書が昨日公開され、こんなサプライズが仕込まれてることがわかった。下の図面(ピンクが桜の木)を見ての通り、正面玄関に至る道に土手と桜並木ができる。残りの敷地にもプラムやりんごを植えまくるみたいよ。
