As a blogger for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, I was often frustrated to find parked cars in front of the cherry trees I wanted to photograph.
When I realized they were actually pretty #CoolCarsUnderCherryBlossoms, I started to look forward to finding cars under cherry trees.
These photos were taken April 2018 in Vancouver (British Columbia) where 40,000 cherry trees bloom every spring.

One of my favourite location for cherry blossom viewing: these Akebono at Georgia and Denman over a reflective pool. The crows love it too!
Accolade cherry trees at Chilco Park in Vancouver.
I went to visit the Accolade cherry trees at Vancouver city hall. They are now in full bloom. Petals are not even falling yet.
Accolade cherry trees at Chilco park are now in full bloom. On the ground, there are flowers fallen face down and other fallen face up. After a careful observation I noticed little birds in the cherry tree were cutting blossoms while searching for food in the tree. Whole cherry blossoms were falling at a very rapid rate. Plop. Plop. All around me.
After attending the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival kick-off concert, I went to Mink Chocolates. During cherry blossoms season, it’s my favourite place to have tea since you have a view of Akebono cherry trees from the window. The trees are full of buds and just about to bloom.
For some reason, I noticed the words Trudeau (the name of our prime minister) written at the bottom of the cup. Click on the pictures to increase the size.
