In East Vancouver there is a street that is amazing each Spring. Unfortunately our Spring started as a rainy weekend although Saturday had some lovely sunshine. Located just north of East 1st Avenue and Windermere Street is this lovely two block stretch of flowering Star Magnolia and Cherry trees.
Looking west under the Magnolias you can see the pink of the Cherry trees at the bottom of the hill.Across the intersection of Windermere you can see the cars parked under the Cherry Trees and one Magnolia on the right through my windshield. It was raining and I didn't want to block traffic by getting out of the car to take pictures.
These trees have been here for more than fifty years, I love the interesting shapes to their trunks and branches.
