A walk to the cherry blossom trees

Yesterday I walked down to the stand of cherry blossom trees that was planted on city council reserve some years back in honour of our sister city Nishio, Japan. The display this year is breath-taking. Beneath these trees are millions of spring bulbs, which have almost finished flowering now but they were a picture a few weeks ago too.
Whoever thought of this initiative deserves to be acknowledged and thanked for the special pleasure this area brings.

      They are stunning at the moment Judith. They are located by Discovery Kindergarten, Whitby, just off Spinnaker Drive. Just under 1km from where I live. We are lucky to have such lovely parks and gardens to enjoy.

      After all the destruction and demolition and sadness in Christchurch it must be heart-warming to see the strong and beautiful signs of new life. Enjoy!

    I love cherry trees! They are just gorgeous when they bloom. Nice photos too! I especially like the last one. Very interesting to look at and beautiful too, with the flowers. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Katie. These trees are a real picture right now. I thought someone had stuck a garland of blossom around the trunk in that last photo but no they are blossoms blooming from the trunk…..amazing. Thanks for commenting:-)
