Thousands of pink blooms colour the entrance to Mill Stream Park.

There is a small grove, a circle of Japanese Cherry trees at the bottom of Departure Bay hill. There is a small commemorative stone in the center of the grove. The trees are in full bloom! What a beautiful location to honour a memory.

I watch for the blooming of these trees every year.  Last year the blooms were sparse and had been driven down by hard rain.  This year, this year, the trees are stunning.

Thousands of blooms

Cotton candy blooms

Last night on the way home from work I had my husband stop so that I could take pictures to share the beauty.

Graceful branches move gently in the breeze.
