Our snowstorms are pretty in pink.
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 at, 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 ower power—a detour down a side street, beneath acanopy of blooms, is poetry in and of itself.
