Every year, I have a ritual: after seeing the first cherry blossoms, I put on my cherry blossom pin and I don’t take it off until the last blossoms have fallen (which is usually mid-May). It’s just my way of celebrating spring.
January is probably the earliest time I ever wore the pin. It’s really nice to have a touch of color on my dark coat.
Let’s hope more blossoms will come soon. The fog seems to have taken over the city these days.
Interested in the pin? The VCBF cherry blossom pin will be on sale sale at the Cherry Jam and, very soon, at the VanDusen Garden Shop.
