You missed it. They are gone. We almost missed it, too. A local news report alerted me to the fact that more than 1000 cherry trees were in bloom around Lake Balboa in Van Nuys. The clouds of pink petals were fleeting, nearly finished with their show when we took my mother-in-law to see them only a few days later. Serene Balboa Park is an emerald in the middle of the San Fernando Valley. We missed the cherry blossoms in their full glory, but I have a feeling the best show happens in a few months, when those trees become heavy with ripe fruit.
