These Umineko cherry tress provide a nice spot for hanami picnic at the Queen Elizabeth park’s duck pond.
From the top of the hill, you get a beautiful view of downtown Vancouver.
There are lots of blossoms on the trees. Cherry petals are just starting to fall.
Umineko means “Seagull”, possibly because the edges of the white petals are round, like the wings of a seagull.
The centre of the Umineko cherry blossoms will turn red before they fall.
The branches offer a mix of fresh blossoms and older blossoms with red centre.
In late afternoon, the sun goes through the blossoms.
Visit that location in the next week to have a hanami picnic under these beautiful Umineko trees
