It was cloudy when I visited the akebono cherry trees at Burrard skytrain station, but at least it wasn’t raining.

I was surprised to find the future location of our Cherry Jam (March 24) in full bloom!

The branches are full of blossoms.

It was fun to take pictures of the blossoms against the surrounding downtown buildings.

Cherry blossoms are already falling, so hurry up to visit that location.
