    This is THE weekend to take in some of our city's awesome 'Akebono' locations. The wind and rain have done nothing to diminish the display. The blossoms even seem to be hanging on longer than usual this year, but in some of these spots, the 'Akebono' snow has begun.

    Check these out (Mouse over the photos to see the location). First photo is by Joseph Lin.

    • Downtown: Burrard Skytrain Station
    • West End/Stanley Park: Rose Garden

    And while you're there, take a circuitous route to see what else you can find. I came across at least one of those locations when I was lost. And then I thought I'd found gold.
