Cherry Blossom Season!

Cherry Blossoms are symbolic of spring, a time to renewal. These flowers are native to Asia; however, they have been brought all over the world and can be growing in many countries as well.  

Cherry blossoms have deep symbolic meaning. In China, they represent love and the female mystique of strength, sexuality, and beauty. In Japan, the flowers are most cherished, with the blossoms found in all aspects of Japanese culture, from film to poetry and even paintings. 

They also represent the fragility and transience of life. They tie closely into Buddhist themes of mindfulness, mortality, and living in the present. They also represent the fragility and transience of life.

Do you now that Cherry Blossoms flowers have been around in Vancouver since 1930? At that time the Japanese cities of Kobe and Yokohama gave 500 trees to plant in Stanley Park to honor Japanese Canadians who served in the first world war. In 1958 another 300 tree were donated by the Japanese consul. From that moment on Cherry Blossoms kept growing in number around Vancouver area.
