Akebono and cherry jam at Burrard skytrain station

It was a gorgeous sunny day for the opening of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival at the Burrard skytrain station today.  The Akebono cherry trees are 2-3 weeks late this year, due to a cold winter. The Akebono cherry buds were about to open, and there were some blossoms at the top of the trees.

Leaving the station, I saw a woman taking pictures of the smaller tree planted in front of the station and realized this was probably my best chance for me to get a close-up  of the blossoms. The tree is in the sunlight. It was perfect.
