    Beechwood St. and West 51st Ave. - Point Grey

    I found this specimen on a rainy Sunday in Point Grey. I don't which neighbourhood this is nor the variety but it is a large, old tree situated on a corner lot facing South. Well worth a drive by.

    Kanzans on 41st between Larch and Yew (Kerrisdale shops) are finishing now.
    They are Quicker than most of other places.(Pictured on April 28)
    Color of the blossoms are fading now.

    Kanzans on Larch between SW Marine Dr. and 42nd were at peak bloom yesterday.(April 29)
    20090429_Larch&SWMarineDr.Kanzan_Izaki 002.jpg
    But some Kanzans in McCleery Golf Course are still not full bloom on April 29.
    There are a lot of Aviums in the golf course. I noticed 1 Ukon there, too.

    Shirofugens have started to bloom.
    2 small trees on north side of 41st near Vine St. were full bloom.

    But on 42nd near Yew were just started to bloom. Also ones in the Community Center were slower than on 42nd.

    Ukons in the yard of the apartment on Yew near 42nd were very beautiful.
    (There are 10 ukons in a very small place. There'll be some problem.)

    I realised there were 3 small trees like Shogetsu on Yew between 43 and 44.(west side, in front of an Apartment building). They were full bloom.

    3 Shirofugens in the yard of Kerrisdale Community Center(Yew & 43) were also full bloom.
    20090504_Yew&W42,44_Shirofugen&Shogetsu_Izaki 006.JPG 20090504_Yew&W42,44_Shirofugen&Shogetsu_Izaki 008.JPG 20090504_Yew&W42,44_Shirofugen&Shogetsu_Izaki 010.JPG

    Ones on the 42nd were full bloom, too.
    20090504_Yew&W42,44_Shirofugen&Shogetsu_Izaki 001.JPG 20090504_Yew&W42,44_Shirofugen&Shogetsu_Izaki 003.JPG
    Also Shirofugens on 46th between E Blvd & Maple were same condition.

    But I think all of them were not 'shiro'=white at all this year.
    I think they must be just 'Fugenzo' in Japan. (Shirofugen is supposed to be a whiter variation of 'Fugenzo'.)

    On May 8, I found a young Akebono tree which had flowers. It locates on 45th near Larch just next to Dingren's Cherry. First I thought they must have been Avium flowers, but they weren't. One broken rib had white flowers without leaves.( Unfortunately I forgot to take close-up pictures. )

    Re: Kerrisdale - Autumnalis trees at the Community Centre

    These Autumnalis trees at the Kerrisdale Community Centre, 42nd and Yew, are looking a little showy in spots on January 6, 2010. They look a lot better than the photo of them from March in 2008, but they're not as far along in bloom as the Autumnalis Rosea trees in the West End. Note how white the buds are.

    As far as I saw pictures, this year is a very good year for Autumnalis and Autumnalis Rosea. Very hot summer last year helped Autumnalis a lot. I think they need a hot summer like Tokyo’s.
    Wendy wrote these Autumnalis are not as showy as Autumnalis Rosea in West End. Last summer I was wondering these old Autumnalis trees near Community Centre might have Witches’ Broom. Because some of the leaves were much smaller than other parts and twigs were congested. Cherry trees with Witches’ Broom can’t have a lot of flowers.

    It's nice to hear from you, Mariko. I don't know about Witches Broom preventing all trees from having a lot of flowers (the Akebonos - if that's what they are (Douglas hasn't dealt with the "Akebonos don't have Witches Broom" issue <grin>) - in Stanley Park have lots of Witches Broom and lots of flowers), but these Community Centre Autumnalis trees are certainly nothing to write home about. The ones near 42nd have very few flowers now. You have to be right up close to all of them to see that they have anything, though the ones on 43rd are a bit better.

    I should be careful. The first tree I had the nerve to bad-mouth got cut down.

    Wonderful photos, Joseph! Very beautiful!! I wish I were there!

    Those are places where I used to walk very often, but I didn’t know about Black-Leaved plums. Flowers make groups like cherries. They look like Umbellate flower arrangements.
    After I came back to Japan, I learned Japanese plums (Chinese origin) have flower arrangements like cherries.

    In Tokyo Buds of Somei-yoshinos are still very hard. Weather Forecast says they’ll start blooming from March 25 this year.

    Re: Kerrisdale - Pendula and Tai Haku

    This large 'Pendula' is on MacDonald at 44th.
    20100322_44thMacdonald_Pendula_Cutler_DSC05757.jpg 20100322_44thMacdonald_Pendula_Cutler_DSC05761.jpg

    These two 'Yae-beni-shidare' trees are in adjacent lots on 45th at Mackenzie. I can imagine the people who planted them were friends who either were each given the trees or who went shopping together and came home with the same trees. The house on the left looks newer (younger) than the tree. If that's the case, that's amazing that they kept the tree that close to the house.

    These beautiful 'Pandora' trees on Arbutus at 51st are in bloom.
    20110327_Arbutus51st_Pandora_Cutler_P1090012.jpg 20110327_Arbutus51st_Pandora_Cutler_P1090014.jpg 20110327_Arbutus51st_Pandora_Cutler_P1090024.jpg 20110327_Arbutus51st_Pandora_Cutler_P1090076.jpg

    Across the street is not a bad-looking 'Beni-shidare' in bloom, but apparently not photogenic, as my photos were all fuzzy.

    Nearby on West Boulevard at 54th is this also beautiful 'Beni-shidare'. The owner said it's been getting a lot of attention and seemed quite happy to talk about it. The house was built in 1949 and he thinks the tree must have been planted around then. He does trim the tree a bit after it blooms, and he pointed out where one limb that must have been growing over the house was removed a long time ago.

    50th west of Marine Crescent is looking its best as far as the 'Accolade' trees go. They might still be in bloom when the two 'Somei-yoshino' open up.
    20110328_50thMarineCr_Accolade_Cutler_P1080947.jpg 20110328_50thMarineCr_Accolade_Cutler_P1080949.jpg 20110328_50thMarineCr_Accolade_Cutler_P1080966.jpg 20110328_50thMarineCr_Accolade_Cutler_P1080967.jpg

    No trick to figuring out how the Cherry Blossom B&B got its name.

    I think these two trees must be 'Yae-beni-shidare', as the 'Beni-shidare' in the neighbourhood are already open and these are not open at all. [Edited by wcutler 2011mar31: I see Mariko posted these in 2008 as 'Yae-beni-shidare' in posting #36]

    I'm sure everyone knows these Akebono at Maple Grove Park. They were just perfect this afternoon.

    Akebono on Carnavon south of 45th

    April 15, 2011. Starting to decline, with many petals falling, but still very beautiful. This is on the Festival map IDed as Akebono.

    These 'Tai Haku' on Balsam between 41st and 43rd are a Festival Favourite this year.
    20110417_Balsam41-43_TakHaku_Cutler_P1100125.jpg 20110417_Balsam41-43_TakHaku_Cutler_P1100119.jpg 20110417_Balsam41-43_TakHaku_Cutler_P1100123.jpg

    From the sublime to the ridiculous. 'Takasago' should be sublime, but the four of them on Vine south of 41st are off the other end of the scale. Even the moss can't live on these things, if that's what that is accompanying the brown rot in the 2nd photo. If the half-tree in the 3rd photo loses another twig, maybe the city will put it out of its misery.

    The 'Washi-no-o' on Balsam at 45th is in in bloom and smells wonderful.

    First posting this year for this neighbourhood. These neighbouring 'Yae-beni-shidare' on 45th at Mackenzie are looking great now.

    This beautiful 'Yokihi' at 2512 West 45 Ave at Larch St., reported in 2009
    This Corymb seems loose than those three 'Yokihi' on West 48 Ave.
    It looks odd that there is distinct transition from pedicel to calyx.

    I thought I'd discovered something new and fabulous, but I see it's a festival favourite - a canopy of 'Ukon' on Churchill north from 49th.

    Vancouver, BC Canada
    I went back to see these 'Ukon' on Churchill at 49th today without a car, so got slightly better photos to use for the festival Blooming Now page, which definitely needs some photos.

    Just south of 41st on Adera is a private (as in behind a hedge) property with one each of four kinds of young cherry trees - one with a 'Whitcomb' tag, one 'Kanzan', and these two trees, a 'Yae-beni-shidare' that I though might have been a festival Birthday Blossom tree, which is really why I wanted to post it, and this 'Beni-shidare' (3rd and 4th photos).

    Just after I photographed those trees, people in a passing car flashed their cherries book at me, then stopped around the corner. So I hooked up with Sue and Diana for further adventures in Shaughnessy, South Cambie and Fairview.
