Victoria an amazing place for blossoms, with thousands of Prunus (flowering cherry and plum) trees in bloom. Tree varieties spread the enjoyment out over a four month period, but the peak is generally considered early April. There were 44,588,324,077 blossoms counted in the 44th Greater Victoria Flower Count which is almost 6 times as many people live on our planet.
