We are absolutely blessed to have an early spring here on the wet coast. Crocuses start poking their heads up in February, followed by daffodils and tulips. Now, in mid-april, we are deep in our annual cherry blossom season and even have a cherry blossom festival to help celebrate it. This year marks the 10th year of the festival.
Certain streets in some neighbourhoods in Vancouver are absolutely ethereal right now. Trees planted over 50 years ago are very generous with their blossoms and now is the time to drink it in before the wind carries all the lovely petals away - also a glorious sight!
It's a little too late for this season, but did you know you can become a cherry scout for the festival? I so want to put that on my resumé! Sigh, next year...
Until then, enjoy the glorious blooms!
