Photographer Ken Ohrn captures Sylvia Ohrn walking in local blossom splendour.

I have previously written about Cherry Blossom Madness  and the one street on the east side of Vancouver that explodes with a canopy of cherry blossoms, and tourists who are themselves the main event. Residents of the street have even had to enlist the City of Vancouver to keep the calm while car drivers jockey to visit the blooms.

There are over 43,000 cherry trees in Vancouver with fifty different varieties. You can take a look at this interactive map by the Vancouver Sun that shows the location of 16,000 cherry trees.

Normally there is a cherry blossom festival in Vancouver and you can take a look at the history of cherry trees here on their website. While many of the events for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival are cancelled, there are still some online events which you can look at here.

You can also view  this YouTube video of images taken from previous Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival events.
