At Burrard Skytrain, the Akebono cherry trees are full of buds.


You’ll find some isolated branches with cherry blossoms.


However, it’s mostly cherry buds for now.


The buds are giving the trees a nice pink hue.


It’s a great time to have a look at cherry buds to see how cherry blossoms grow.  In this picture,  two flowers are coming out of one bud.


These cherry blossoms are not afraid of the rain, neither should you be.


The cherry trees will be in full bloom at the Burrard Skytrain Station in a couple of weeks, just in time for our Cherry Jam on April 3rd! Don’t miss it!

Cherry Jam will showcase performances by the Yayoi Movement Theatre, Folk artist Michael Averill, 2013 Haiku Invitational celebrity readings and Haiku Bard by Christopher Gaze of Bard on the Beach, an energetic dance performance by VanCity Soran and the thunderous sounds of Richmond’s Tetsu Taiko to warm up the scenes of Cherry Jam.
