It was a lovely day to go cherry-blossom viewing today: the sun was finally out. Pink blossoms and blue sky are what you want to see at this time of year!
I saw this Whitcomb cherry tree, located between the seawall and the parking lot on Bayshore/Denman. It’s starting to bloom nicely.
From a different angle: the cherry tree is planted near a skyrise.
The tree is still budding, which means plenty more blossoms to come.
This tree is definitely worth a visit on a sunny day.
