Happy Spring to my Pano Friends. While I was in Victoria, BC there were the most beautiful flowering Cherry trees. Sharon

I am pretty sure the name of the Cherry Tree is Prunus serrulata Kwanzan (Kanzan) Cherry blossoms. If I am wrong would someone let me know. Thanks, Sharon

Sharon, they are wonderful these trees! I am surprised with their so pink colour, as our cherries are white, Olga

Hi Olga. I had seen very pale pink flowers before. I do not think they were fruiting cherry trees, just ornamental trees. I put a link above to show the different types. You have become a very special visitor for me. I wish to thank you for taking time to comment on my photos. Maybe you can upload a picture of your white cherry trees. Talk to you later. Thanks again, Sharon

Hi Alan and Steve. I had never seen so much Pink in one place in my entire life. Tree after tree and street after street just loaded with pink blossoms. I do not think they were the fruiting variety. I tried to look them up on the net, I put a link above. Thanks for looking and the nice comments. Sharon

Spring is in the air..what a heavily blossomed tree. It is full of colour but will only last for few days before leaves takes over. Greta shot Sharon.

Hi John and Manoo. I loved the blossoms on this tree. We have now finished the blossom stage in Southern California. This week it was more like summer than spring. Between 95 and 105. Yesterday a little cool down, thank goodness. Have a great weekend to come. Sharon

Hello Maria. I loved the colors of the blossoms on this great tree also. There were street after street of these trees completely full of pink flowers. Some day I wish to visit Europe and see your beautiful country. Maybe some day before I get too old. Thanks for commenting on my photos and best to you. Sharon
