    The cherries in bloom were few and far between, but here's what I found:

    This one at McLean & Williams:

    And this one at Woodland & Kitchener:

    Here's the map for the 2nd one:

    Edited 2013mar18 by wcutler: There is no 'Accolade' or any other kind of cherry at either of these locations. I did see one tree trunk with no branches, so maybe that was one of them.

    The Rancho Sargent cherries (alternate blocks with red maples) are blooming beautifully on Victoria Street from Broadway up to Powell Street even in rainy day.

    Re: Grandview Woodland - Cheal's Weeping

    While "Biking the Blossoms" last Saturday we came across two small mature weeping chrisanthemum-flowered cherries in a private yard on the North side of Adanac, East of Woodland. The trees were not strongly weeping in habit, but the flowers with many narrow petals and extra sepal-like petals between the sepals suggest that they are either Kiku-shidare-zakura or Cheal's Weeping. The trees show some bark fissures.

    Re: Grandview Woodland - Tai Haku?

    We saw several of these large trees with "snowballs" of white flowers on Saturday's "Bike the Blossoms" on the West side of Woodland, somewhere South of William.
    We did not note the size of the flowers, but the general shape looks like Tai Haku.

    Re: Grandview Woodland - Kanzans

    Oh my gosh are there a lot of whole block Kanzans in Grandview-Woodland:

    3rd, from Semlin to Commercial

    Kanzans on Templeton south of 1st. Here's an Amanogawa on Templeton at Grant.

    This street would have had nice plum colour too.

    Re: Grandview Woodland

    We've been asked to check out a small grove of Shirofugens at the parkette (Salsbury Park) at Salsbury and Adanac. Can we remember that till mid-April?

    Whitcomb - Grandview Woodlands, on Victoria Dr at E 5th

    First posting in 2009

    The Prunus x subhirtella 'Whitcomb' trees in McSpadden Park on Victoria Drive at E. 5th are showing pink buds now, so should be in bloom within a week or two. These photos are from March 21, 2009.

    These are showing a lot more colour now, but they're not really open yet. You can check last year's posting to see what you're waiting to see.

    Sorry, I forgot to post this from April 4. I thought these were getting past prime and I'd missed them at their best, but then Joseph Lin wrote to say he was told on April 7 that they were only 50% open. I think maybe they're not going to be as spectacular this year as last and they should be given another chance next year at being a favourite.

    alley blossoms

    I happened to be out walking today and noticed some pretty blossoms in an alley so I thought I would take some photos for this site. They are just east of the little A on the map. Enjoy!

    Re: alley blossoms

    'Akebono'. The fourth picture from the left ( a wonderful image) shows the staminodes (imperfectly formed extra petals) that are diagnostic for this cultivar.

    Here they are again, though this is old already, as they were taken April 9.

    Kanzan - Grandview Woodlands, 3rd Ave Semlin to Commercial

    Gosh those Prunus Sato-zakura Group 'Kanzan' trees didn't hang around for long this year. These trees on E 3rd from Semlin to Commercial (a block west of Victoria) are well past prime now, but there's lots of petal "snow" and the trees still have some colour.
    44-Kanzan3rdSemlin.gif 20090506_3rdSemlin_Kanzan_Cutler_4560.jpg

    After taking in the favourites, you can see more Kanzans a block east on Lakewood at 3rd and 4th. On 3th east of Lakewood on the north side is an Amanogawa in a yard. It's also past its prime - the blossoms all have red centres now.
    20090506_3rdLakewood_Kanzan_Cutler_4563.jpg 20090506_4thLakewood_Kanzan_Cutler_4565.jpg 20090506_3rdLakewood_Amanogawa_Cutler_4562.jpg

    Other locations are 2nd, from Victoria to Commercial, Templeton up to Commercial, and across 1st on Semlin at Graveley looking north and south.
