Join The Cherry Blossom Hunt At South Coast Botanic Garden!
The Cherry Blossoms are beginning to bloom and the Cherry Blossom Hunt has started for Palos Verdes homes owners to see these beautiful blossoms at the South Coast Botanic Garden. As they have a short blooming season, many believe that cherry blossoms symbolize the fleeting beauty of life. Cherry Blossoms are the symbolic national flower of Japan and are said to be an omen of good fortune and an emblem of love and affection. This is the closest location for us to see the beauty and color of these trees and this reminds us that Spring is just around the corner.
Starting on March 1, 2020, the Garden will be coming to life with color for this Spring season. When you enter the Garden you will grab a map and search on foot for colorful cherry, rose and poppy blossoms throughout the Garden. You will also learn about the history, significance and story behind these sensational blooms. Blossoms are seasonal, weather dependent and vary from year to year. This year they feel that cherry and stone fruit blossoms will range from February to late March, poppies in March and April, and roses in April, May and even June.
Another fun event this month taking place at the Garden is Sip & Paint: Cherries & Mimosas which will take place on March 7, 2020. Paint the Cherry Blossoms of Spring in watercolors at South Coast Botanic Garden with local Art Educator and Artist Teresa Venturo.
