Six trees in front of 1290 West 11th Ave:
'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.
The Akebono's are not in bloom anymore BUT these Kanzan's on the street nearby are.
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.
Shirofugen at the ne corner of Birch & 13 ave
Seven years later, two of the three trees remain and have grown enough to obscure the company signage on the side of building.
Cherry scouting with Wendy Cutler, decked out in cherry blossom shoes. 'Whitcomb' on Lamey's Mill Rd.
Tree is starting to bloom, but only on the branches closest to the building. Warmer, I guess.
