Possible Cherry Blossoms – Ottawa

It appears that the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom in Canada, Ottawa. I took pictures of the one on the Experimental Farm, went too early for the one at Andrew Haydon park, and checking up on some group of trees at a busy Transit way. Someone’s blog mentioned these were Cherry Blossoms but I’m too unsure if these are or not.

(All images and video were taken with a Lumix GF1 – Pancake lens.)

I checked up on this place quite a few times last month to see if these were actually Cherry Blossoms. Even if they are not Cherry Blossoms I hope you do enjoy the view regardless of the type of tree it is.

The trees are planted next to a busy Transit way – Lincoln Fields bus Station – and a popular mall near it. There is also a High School named Woodroffe High School just a few minutes walk from this place.

Quite a few people with DSLR’s  were photographing these trees when I was around. If you look carefully you could probably spot two taking images in the below image.

One thing I did notice about these trees is how neatly planted they were. They are neatly lined up that you could walk through numerous “tunnels”. I bet someone with enough creativity could turn this place into a maze by simply placing wooden boards up against the tree.

How many “tunnels” can you spot?

The sun poked through the stormy looking clouds a few times. I rushed to take pictures before heavy winds or rain would wash away the pedals from the trees. It appears Mother Nature also allowed me to take pictures without being caught in a Thunderstorm.

Ah, the sun makes things look so much better.
