Today on Broadway street (corner of Cliff), I went to investigate a tree with dark pink blossoms and discovered with pleasure that it was a Whitcomb cherry tree!

The tree is almost fully bloom.

Photographer’s tips: There are no low branches on this tree so make sure you bring a camera with a good zoom. (Warning: presence of  poles and wires.)  Traffic is heavy on Broadway and  there’s no parking. You’ll have to park on the adjacent streets and walk from there.

And don’t forget to look at your feet, too!

Also blooming now in Burnaby North: Two Accolade cherry trees on Halifax, corner of Kensington.
