With a forecast of 12 degrees and partly cloudy, I headed to Vancouver City Hall to look at the Accolade cherry trees. The trees were in full bloom!

If you walk up the steps towards the entrance, you’ll be able to take close-ups of the buds and the flowers.

There are park benches where you can have a snack and look at the blossoms over your head.

It’s always fun to try to get a picture of the statue of George Vancouver pointing at the Accolade cherry blossoms.

The petals and flowers are starting to fall. Visit this location within the end of the week.
