Ornamental Cherry Blossoms by George Cousins

Here in Victoria, on Vancouver Island, there are huge numbers of ornamental trees, many of them looking like this, and starting about now the streets will be lined with masses of blooms. This shot was taken in mid-March 2008 with a Sony DSCF828 camera. If you visit Victoria in the spring, you can walk around anywhere in the city, especially the southern half, and find yourself immersed in trees in full bloom. So any kind of a day trek is very easy to do.

    Those are simply stunning, George.

  • Thanks Stan, when they come into full bloom I’ll get some shots of whole streets lined with them. It’s such a shame they don’t last a lot longer than they do.

    There are several long rows of these lovelies in my favorite Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. They haven’t started blooming yet. I love the way they form balls of flowers. They would be great as wedding flowers, don’t you think?

  • Yes I agree, I think they are really beautiful and would be great as wedding flowers. The clusters of blooms are quite gorgeous.
