Beautiful Blossoms of Vancouver

Blossom of the year. Just as the winter begins to wear you thin, the pink umbrellas pull you from a near funk and into the new season. Days begin to warm and long forgotten BBQs are dusted off and fired up.


Sakura, the Japanese word for cherry blossom is a hauntingly beautiful word that announces it’s time for a hanami. A tradition that has lasted for centuries in Japanese culture, a hanami is about joining family and friends in a celebration of spring; all you need to do is find your favourite tree, lay out a blanket and open your picnic basket.

Cherry blossom time is my favorite time of year, I hope you have a chance to get out and see these beautiful blooms before the season comes to an end.
