That wonderfully sunny day we enjoyed this past weekend finally coaxed the first few cherry trees into bloom.
On a Sunday walk I came across blossoming cherry trees at:
- 6th and Arbutus, just east of Arbutus Coffee
- Kits Point, particularly on Greer Ave.
- Cypress between York and West 1st
- West 4th at Balsam
I’d headed specifically to West 6th, where the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival brochure notes that blossoms usually appearing in early March. Here we are, almost April, and the cherry blossoms are barely starting.
I’d heard reports that spring was a few weeks behind, but I did not realize just how much. Can anyone suggest some other great spots to find cherry tree blossoms in Kits?
