    'Shiro-fugen' at Queen Elizabeth Park Pitch and Putt. Looking about the same as it did exactly three years ago May 4, 2014 (previous posting #105).

    What more can you say about Pink Perfection? The name says it all.

    Right, for the flowers. For the trees, the name is serious hyperbole. Possibly criminal hyperbole. :)

    For the 'Shiro-fugen', it's nice to be able to see them as wide-spreading as they like to be. Interesting how pink the tree looks in the thumbnail pictures, from the leaves. The flowers are white now.

    Great fun was had by all at Queen Elizabeth Park today. I was there for the Alex Downie Walk and Talk - and a whole lot more!

    Fifty-three people attended the walk today with Alex Downie. It was very informative. Thanks to Alex for sharing his passion and knowledge of trees at Queen Elizabeth Park.
