Vancouver Magazine - - City -

is still strug­gling with shov­els and plows come early spring, Van­cou­verites are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a snow­fall of an­other va­ri­ety: cherry blos­som petals. But it’s not like we haven’t earned this lit­tle hit of nat­u­ral whimsy. We tough it out through months of ˆat, all­con­sum­ing grey, through fog and sleet and down­pours, all for the prom­ise of that light at the end of the tun­nel: spring, in all of its blos­som­ing bub­ble­gum­pink glory. The Van­cou­ver Cherry Blos­som Fes­ti­val runs April 3through 29, but you don’t need songs and haikus to cel­e­brate our West Coast ˆower power—a de­tour down a side street, be­neath acanopy of blooms, is po­etry in and of it­self.
