You can always count on the Whitcomb cherry trees located at Nicola and Pendrell to announce the beginning of the Vancouver cherry blossom season: they’re the first cherry trees to bloom in the city.
The Whitcomb cherry blossoms are currently 40% open and worth a visit if you’re in the Vancouver West-End area.
Due to the presence of many electrical wires, you’ll need to zoom to get good pictures.
Don’t forget to look at your feet: the fallen blossoms can make good photos too.
Use the VCBF neighbourhood map to locate Whitcomb cherry trees in your area.
Happy cherry blossom viewing!
