    'Shirotae'. They could be fragrant. It's the same cultivar that is planted along the allee leading to the Japanese Memorial in Stanley Park, but those wouldn't be in bloom yet.

    'Ukon' trees are in bloom on Spruce just off the south side of W. 6th.

    Great 7 blocks of kanzans in full bloom on a nice sunny afternoon along W 7th bike route from Heather to Hemlock. Note this street is blocked to vehicles at Oak so it is best to bike or walk. There are also a few blocks nearby a block south on W 8th that are also nice.

    Seven years later, two of the three trees remain and have grown enough to obscure the company signage on the side of building.

    Tree is starting to bloom, but only on the branches closest to the building. Warmer, I guess.

    This nice canopied blocks and blocks of Kanzen are coming into bloom nicely on the West 7th bike route.

    Some 'Kanzan' along False Creek opposite Granville Island are open and looking pretty impressive. These are favourites just east of the road onto the island.

    This group is along the seawall on the south side of False Creek, has been there for over ten years.

    There was a big to-do when some 'Kanzan' were removed for repairs to the road, but there are new trees there now, as promised by the city - a few 'Akebono' alongside the road (right side of the picture), and a row of 'Shiro-fugen' in the median strip. These are not open yet, but it's supposed to get quite warm this week - I'd expect them to be open by the weekend.

    Farther along at Charleston Park, these festival favourite 'Ukon' are in full bloom.

    I think the 'Kanzan' at Ron Basford Park on Granville Island should be a festival favourite. Lots of photo opportunities there - even though the 18 trees are not in great shape , it's all about location..location...location.

    OK. You make a good case.
