Sibu Cherry Blossom 2009

The cherry blossom trees along the Brooke Drive bloom almost annually. Last year they had full bloom in June. Somehow this year those trees bloom a bit later, somewhere in late August.

I find last year bloom are more beautiful than this year. Most of the cherry blossom here are pink and white in colour

Some close up photos of the cherry blossom. It might not as beautiful as the one in Japan or Europe but the local folks should learn to appreciate it.

Unfortunately, the flowers don't stay for long and the tree start to shed their flowers

I just wish the flower will hang around for a longer period for me to enjoy

huh! wat a big cherry blossom! thought we only can see such a big one in countries with four seasons! I saw many in China during Oct month, and couldn't distinguish between "tao hua" and "ying hua", maybe "tao hua" is the smaller tree?
