    Kate Gerson has sent along these photos of a row of 'Kanzan' on Alexander, on the north side, between Princess and the lane that is between princess and Jackson. There is a 'Whitcomb' on either side of this grouping.

    The Oppenheimer Park trees blossoms were just starting their snowy phase yesterday for David Tracey's Tree Talk & Walk. Here are the 'Akebono' that were looking quite small what seems like just a few years ago.

    Discovered on the walk: somewhat young 'Rancho' trees interspersed along Union from Jackson (already reported) to three on the south side of the street from Princess to Heatley and another closer to Hawks. This one is just west of Princess.

    We did not see any 'Shirotae' tree on Keefer at the Community Centre, as reported in posting #46.

    I'm surprised they're just starting, when that cultivar is pretty much open in most of the city. But they should still be looking good for David Tracey's Talk & Walk on March 13. And I'm expecting the 'Akebono' trees in Oppenheimer Park to be open as well.

    The 'Akebono' trees in Oppenheimer Park were in perfect bloom on March 13 for David Tracey's walk. Everyone was too wet to bother taking photos of the 'Accolade' on Pender, but they were in perfect bloom as well, as were the 'Beni-shidare' in the neighbourhood. 'Yae-beni-shidare' had some open blooms, as did 'Rancho'. The second photo was taken by Louisa Lo.

    Oppenheimer Park is a good place to compare 'Akebono' (first 3 photos) with 'Somei-yoshino' (last 3 photos).
