Cherry Blossoms in Taiwan

The Cherry blossom is one of the most beautiful flowers that I’ve seen sprouting on a tree.  I  would love to go to Japan during the Cherry blossom season but I do not have the funds as this moment. I guess that I would have  to save up more before it could become a reality.

I’m lucky that I got to view the cherry blossoms when I was in Taiwan in Feburary this year.  It was the first time that I visited a Cherry blossom grove and it was a really magical experience for me.

I was lucky to be able to spot this bee buzzing near the flower and capture it with my camera.

I’m not sure what bird this is but I spotted it flying toward the flower looking for nectar.

I managed to see 3 different varieties of Cherry blossoms.   They were in white, light pink and dark pink.

Don’t they look lovely as a cluster of flowers on a tree.  White has to be my 2nd favourite out of all the varieties that I saw.

I visited Taiwan a bit late as most of the blooms have already dropped as it was nearly the end of the Cherry Blossom season.  If I was in Taipei a few weeks earlier I would have been able to see all the trees in full bloom. That would have certainly be awesome!!

  1. So beautiful and I love the capture with the bee! That little bee is moving quickly to enjoy the blossoms! Have a terrific week! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I’ve been meaning to visit Japan too for cherry blossoms but no budget yet. I did not know that Taiwan has cherry blossoms too.

  3. Ohh I would love to see cherry blossoms in bloom too, whether in Taiwan or Japan! I even asked the florist to mimic the effect of cherry blossoms at church for my wedding ceremony hehe. 🙂
