It was a lovely day to go cherry-blossom viewing today: the sun was finally out. Pink blossoms and blue sky are what you want to see at this time of year!


I saw this Whitcomb cherry tree, located between the seawall and the parking lot on Bayshore/Denman. It’s starting to bloom nicely.


From a different angle:  the cherry tree is planted near a skyrise.


Whitcomb cherry blossoms in front of a skyscrapper in Vancouver. So pretty!


The tree is still budding, which means plenty more blossoms to come.


This tree is definitely worth a visit on a sunny day.
