Jessica Tremblay is an award-haiku poet from Quebec who moved to Vancouver, B.C in the winter of 2005 and fell in love with cherry blossoms the following spring.
In 2008, her haiku “late for work – / cherry petals / in my hair” won Best B.C. Poem at the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational. The winning poem was sculpted in a Haiku rock in the cherry grove of the Van Dusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, B.C).
Since 2013, she volunteers for the Vancouver Cherry Blossoms as the haiku coordinator, manages the VCBF blog, and acts as cherry scout to identify cherry trees in her neighborhood.
Experience Cherry Blossoms is a first-person account of cherry blossoms viewing in Vancouver, BC.
There are 40,000 cherry trees in Vancouver, BC, on the West Coast of Canada.
The author invites you to experience the beauty of cherry blossoms through photos, haiku, games and crafts projects inspired by these beautiful flowers.
My goal is for people to discover the beauty of cherry blossoms and get inspiration to write a haiku to submit to the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational.
