Cherry Blossom@SC Botanical Garden: Yesterday, 3/7/2009, we went to see cherryblossoms at South Coast Botanical Garden. It seemed it passed at least a week from the full bloom of the cherryblossoms. But we found a few cherry trees with lots of cherryblossoms in the back not much with sun exposure.
The cherry is "Pink Cloud," a hybrid of Ooshima Zakura cherry. There are more than 50 Japanese flowering cherry trees of this kind at South Coast Botanical Garden in Rancho Palos Verdes, a suburb of Los Angeles, California. This botanical garden is on a hill and get lots of sunshine, so cherry blossoms are earlier compared to other places in Los Angeles. Cherry trees must have been at full blossom around 2/27/09 or 2/28/09 this year.

We walked around the spacious botanical garden searching for cherry blossom. Many cherry trees had green leaves and cherry blossoms were gone. As we walked around the back of the Rose Garden, there were three cherry trees with cherry blossoms, as if covering beautiful yellow Narcissus flowers.
Fragrance of Cherry blossoms and Narcissus flowers were diffusing their sweet scent in the air, gentle breeze, cherry petals dancing in the sky........ It was illusional.
Starting this botanical garden, I plan to participate Cherry Blossom picnics on 3/9/09 at Columbia Park in Torrance and on 3/14/09 at Balboa Park in Van Nuys, California. Cherry trees bloom once a year. I will introduce you to cherry blossoms in Los Angeles area on this blog this year again.
From local time today, 3/8/2009 (Sunday), it became Summer Time (Daylight Saving Time). It excludes Hawaii state, Arizona state, and Navajo Nation. Officially, we turned the clock 1 hour ahead from 2 AM to 3 AM.
