    Twelve Accolade trees at Yaohan Centre in Richmond are trying to bloom (sputtering). Ten trees at the entrance on No. #3 Road and two in front of the Radisson Hotel at same location.
    Flowers are sparse , but I did see buds as well.

    Nine Whitcomb trees blooming at SW corner of Hazelbridge (6 trees) and Alexandra (3 trees).
    Noticed some suckers on a few of the trees. Pink surveyor's tape on one tree...

    In Steveston, four Whitcombs are blooming at 3740 Chatham Street (strip mall). Three trees on Chatham, and one on 2nd Avenue. Also one Accolade tree east of the three Whitcombs is just starting to show a very few blossoms.

    There are three Shosar trees in full bloom at 5520 Alderbridge Way, north of Minoru Blvd - and sadly, two dead ones.
    Catch them before they are gone, starting to drop petals.

    Lots of Akebonos and lots of photos this morning at Garry Point in Steveston. Many of the trees had an orange-yellow lichen on the bark. At the end of bloom.

    Amongst the numerous Akebonos at Garry Point I noticed one tree that was different. The flowers look like TaiHaku but the buds do not.

    I think they do look like 'Tai-haku'. It would help to have the diameter of the flowers.

    Pear, probably Callery Pear (I say because it's the only ornamental pear I know the name of, and there are a lot of them around). Small white or greenish white flowers with colourful anthers; everything points upward.

    Are these at 7251 Minoru Blvd, at Acheson? They look like the Korean Hill Cherries on our map at that location.

    Shirotae at Minoru Chapel. Appeals to chickadees, too.
