[Edited 2010feb02 by wcutler: This was the introductory posting for the now-deleted Festival Favourites Forum. Favourites will from now on be posted in the neighbourhood blogs where the trees live] This forum is intended for Cherry Scouts of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, to post descriptions, photos and blooming dates of the trees identified as VCBF favourite cherry trees on the Cherry Blossom Viewing Map that will be posted on the VCBF website. Unofficial "scouts" are welcome to comment. For those new to the forums: How to Register, and How to Attach Images. To post to this forum, find the thread on the tree you want to report on and click reply on the last note. Or if you want to reply to an earlier note, click Quote and delete all the quoted text except for the specific point you're replying to (keep the tags that are in [ ] brackets). As this board consists only of one thread for each of the designated favourites, posters are not permitted to start new threads.
