Cherry Blossom Madness

The account is rightfully named “cherryblossommadness”, has been entertaining Vancourites for years, and it has finally made it’s return this season.

The account owner happens to live on a cherry blossom hot spot, which is right in front of her house. It provides her a front row seat to those that come each year to take pictures of the beautiful blooms. Although she does not disclose where she lives, people have flocked to the area.

Over the years she sees her normally quiet street get filled with people, and lovingly calls it “Cherry Blossom Madness”. It gives us amazing insight into the behind the scenes of how that perfect Cherry Blossom photo is really taken.

She documents people that get creative. Capturing the beautiful costumes she sees, the odd ways of taking pictures, and the people that seem to treat her home like a park.

So without further ado, here are our favourite stories from this year with her entertaining captions

She also does advocate for respecting people’s lawns and the trees.

All in all, it is innocent fun and proving to be as entertaining as seeing the cherry blossoms themselves. If you’re also looking for a great spot to catch some photos yourself, you should check out this interactive map with over 300 locations in Metro Vancouver.
