The Third Month (Hanamizuki - 花見月) from the series
The Twelve Months (Jūnika tsuki no uchi - 十二ヶ月のうち)

Identifier: 1851c Kunisada Genji calendar 05

In modern-day Japan, flower viewing (o-hanami) of blossoming cherry trees is generally in April, but can be late March through early May. During the Edo Period (1600-1868) month designation was much more fluid, with extra "intercalary" months added when necessary, much as the Western calendar adds "leap years" and has varying days in each of the 12 months.
