The only cherry blossom I found was this knitted blossom that someone had hung on a branch. (This reminded me of the yarn bombing of Joy Kogawa’s house in 2011!)
The good news though is that the Akebono cherry trees are full of buds which means that cherry blossoms are only a few weeks away.
The cherry buds give the trees a nice green glow.
In a few weeks, there will be so many cherry blossoms on these branches you will barely be able to see the sky!
Don’t forget to reserve your SakuraB bento box to picnic under the blossom at the Burrard skytrain station during our popular Cherry jam concert (April 4th).
