Blossom Street In Kitsilano

THE LIGHT DUSTING OF PINK on the street is a sign that fresh green leaves will soon unfurl to replace this arch of blossoms in Kitsilano.

  1. I just LOVE this time of year and my allergy suffering is worth moments like those captured in the photo!

  2. It still strikes me as strange to see all this glory in streets.
    Living in the country, I feel these trees belong to gardens :-)

  3. I've always loved those streets in Kits with the overhanging trees. I'd love to live there.
    There's an area in Medicine Hat with grand old houses and overhanging trees. When we were living in an apartment on the big bald prairie, Dick would take me to those shady streets to cheer me up when I got homesick for The Wet Coast.

  4. Now that I live on the other side of the Burrard Bridge, I don't get to see the lovely streets of "Kits" quite as often. Cypress Street and 8th Avenue (and later, 5th Avenue) were on my bike route to and from work, and never failed to give me a jolt of pleasure. Your photograph has a dream quality and a familiar feeling (although I couldn't positively identify the location) to it that I love. I wonder if we have already "met" on one of our photography ventures. Sometimes, with the camera against my eye, I miss things right in front of me:)

  5. I love the way the canopy of blossoms look. Lovely scene.

  6. Just a stunning photo, Penelope! My husband grew up in Kerrisdale and we usually take a spring drive through Shaughnessy and Kerrisdale to admire the cherry blossoms. More than blossoms, I adore the avenues of tall, sturdy trees that have been around for decades and are twisted with character and arched over the streets...much more interesting than the young trees in my neighbourhood.

    I do hope you have a wonderful weekend...:)
