Trees with pink blossoms are in full bloom at Waller Park in Santa Maria.
It's drawing people to stop by to take photos with them and admire their beauty.
Some people have questions about what kind of trees are producing those pretty pink blossoms.
We asked a local garden expert to clear things up. Efrain Ramirez of the Garden Center told KSBY the trees are, "The ornamental plum. All it does has a darker purple leaf to it and it has a whiter flower bloom to it while the cherry blossom is less common and it has a green foliage of the leaves and it has a darker pinkish looking flower to it."
The trees should be in bloom for months.
If you want to see the famous cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C., they aren't expected to bloom this year until mid to late March. It all depends on the weather.
