South of the Fraser

Cherry blossoms along 102 Avenue

Cherry blossoms

 

Could the year be complete without a picture of a cherry tree in bloom?

This one is on 102 Avenue, between King George Boulevard and 140 Street. I took the picture with the phone, which did a decent job. It helped that it was just past dawn, so the light was beautifully horizontal.

In the brief span of time they're in bloom my favourite time is when the leaves start to poke through the petals. They start off pink, as if the petals pigmentation has rubbed off on them.

Introduction

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
