Lotus Johnson has posted a few photos of a ‘Whitcomb’ cherry at Government House in Victoria, in a protected location, one-quarter in bloom.

Usually ‘Whitcomb’ do a little preview in January, with a few branches showing open flowers. This is one of her photos on flickr.

Victoria often sees cherry blossoms a little bit earlier than Vancouver because of a warmer climate.
