Hanami #5: White Bouquet

Cultivar & variety identification is tricky for a novice like me and the research is time-consuming but oh so fascinating. With help from the excellent UBC Botanical Gardens Forums & the Cherry Scouts, I learned to distinguish between a cherry blossom & a plum blossom. Soon I hope to return to this and previous posts and tell you exactly what Sakuras we've been viewing. For now, I will think of this cherry blossom as one of my favourites because of colour (white with traces of pink), inflorescence and, perhaps most of all, how it looks against the clear blue sky.
