    I've been to visit my assigned favourite, "Umineko" in Queen Elizabeth Park. At least I hope I've got the right tree (well, four trees) near the duck pond. If I have the right trees they are adjacent to an oak tree which has a sign saying it was planted by Princess Elizabeth in 1951. No bloom yet but that gives me time to figure out how to post a photo. New to both cherry tree i.d. and digital photography!
    Thanks for the heads up about 15th and Sophia. I'll wander by there today.
    cheers,
    Sarah.

    Here's a map Sarah drew for me, which I'm posting just because, and the Google map.

    There is a beautiful planting of what appear to be Whitcombs with a single Spire tree in the middle on 27th Avenue, east of St. George:

    NOTE: I couldn't get a picture of the presumed Spire blossoms, because they're too high up.

    These Akebonos on Manitoba & 41 Ave. started to bloom. You can not imagine how beautiful they were in snow on March 28.

    Cherry in Q-E Park is waking up, another several days of sun will surely make it
    more magnificent.

    Time: April-12, around noon time
    Loocation: South parking area (closed to 33rd St)
    Blossom: Yoshino, around 10~15% of full bloom

    Here are the Akebonos on Manitoba without the snow. They run for a few blocks north of 41st and at least a block south.

    The others with the 'Spire' shaped one aren't Whitcomb cherries, wrong petal shape and color. Might be a P. x yedoensis form such as 'Akebono'. Additional views would make it easier to tell.

    * Finished - Sargentii - Riley Park, in Queen Elizabeth Park

    There's a rumour that the Sargentii in Queen Elizabeth Park has come into bloom. It's by the West 33rd Avenue parking area.
    23Sargentii-RileyPark.gif . [Edited by wcutler] Or maybe not yet - the location of the rumoured tree is not even in Vancouver.

    Amanogawa: tall, pillar-like tree; blossoms too high for short women to pick. All blossoms appear to be growing upwards, like candles. In bloom SW corner of Quebec and 40th Avenue, April 30, 2008.
