It is a celebration in Japan with the arrival the Cherry Blossoms.  They are enjoyed in dishes, as teas and sweet delights.  They are preserved in sugar, salt and vinegar.  The blooming trees are a destination for walks, picnics and tea’s.  Japan has gifted Victoria with flowering cherry trees for special celebrations.  One set of these trees form a walkway to the Labyrinth in Irving Park.  The Labyrinth has two pathways to the entrance that are each lined with these blossoming trees.  A meandering walk can be duplicated here in late April, early May.

New studies are being done on the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities of these cherry blossoms.  They are including the benefits for anti-aging.
