canadian gardening | cherry blossoms

It’s cherry week!  Aren’t they divine?  I have loved them since I was a child, eating whole baskets with my Dad.  They stained our hands and mouths crimson but we couldn’t stop eating them!   I think the most amazing thing I have done with cherries is to roast them in the oven with lemon zest and a little sugar – I can’t even describe the intense scrumptious flavour that erupts in your mouth!

Over the last year I have had some amazing photo assignments that allowed me to photograph both blossoms and fresh cherries in season.  Hope you enjoy!

My dream to see cherry blossoms in the spring was finally fulfilled when I photographed at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for Canadian Gardening.  To make the day even more special, my mother came with me to the fairyland of pink and white fluffy blossoms.  This story ran in the spring for Canadian Gardening and I’ve included a few other favorites from that day. . .
