As a born and bred
Vancouverite, I have grown up with the multitude of cherry blossom
trees which line this city’s streets. As a child I can remember bike
riding along various avenues in this city, and I vividly recall the
varying colours of pink blossoms budding and thriving in the spring
sunshine. Memories of walking along West 47th Avenue on my way to visit
my grandmother bring back clear images of cherry blossom trees with
alternating bright and then light pink blossoms.
past 20 years I have enjoyed watching a grove of cherry blossom trees
right across the street from where I live in East Richmond. This year,
I have decided to ‘stop and smell the cherry blossoms by joining in the
Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival for a fun, free guided bike tour
which includes a talk by a Vancouver Parks Board arborist!
Join me as I stay tuned for more details about this event
happening on Saturday, April 28th at www.velopalooza.ca!
