Akebono cherry petals on Georgia street in Burnaby

My favorite cherry viewing spot is Georgia street, between Willingdon and Boundary, in Burnaby. There are two rows of cherry trees extending on  seven blocks!

It’s a great place to walk but you should visit soon (within 2-3 days): petals are already falling and covering the sidewalks.

The extra petal on the blossom is how you can tell it’s an Akebono (as opposed to a somei-yoshino) cherry tree.
