Animal Crossing: New Horizon players on Nintendo Switch will now start noticing cherry blossom trees indicating the arrival of spring.

They will be available for only a limited period of time starting April 1 and will disappear after April 10 for players in the Northern Hemisphere. As for players in the Southern Hemisphere, they should have cherry blossoms in October. However, you need to make sure that you have the most recent update of the game.
