    Two 'Whitcomb' pretty much in bloom at the Burnaby Art Gallery at Deer Lake. It's a very nice setting for them.

    I decided to ride the rails this afternoon and get the photo I've been begging for, of the 'Whitcomb' trees at the 22nd St Skytrain Station. My so-called friends have been mentioning them for a couple of years now, and they're on the map, but no photos have been posted. So here they are. The first photo is from inside the train, just included to give an idea of the setting. There are two trees together and one other, just to the west of the south side of the station. [Edited by wcutler 2012mar24] I just found out that the 22nd St Station is New West - no wonder I haven't been able to find the photos. My friend did post them there!] I'm leaving these in this posting, will copy them to New West. .

    I'm sure these are the two 'Whitcomb' lisali posted, on Royal Oak, near Victory, just south of the Royal Oak Skytrain Station.

    But look at this, right around the corner, on Victory, east from Royal Oak. A whole block with eight 'Whitcomb', seven 'Accolade' (in two groups: four at the east end and three at the other end), and I think a few 'Akebono' in the mix as well. They're young, nice-looking trees. Here are the 'Whitcomb'.

    And the 'Accolade', not yet in bloom, but included just so I can get them on the map. In another week or so, you might be able to see both cultivars in bloom.

    I saw these two trees in bloom in 2008; it's taken me four years to get photos of them. I finally drove quite a bit out of my way to get these. They didn't need me on time at that rehearsal anyway.

    Two 'Whitcomb' on the east side of Nelson, the block south of Imperial, visible from the Skytrain. This area of Nelson has a lot of 'Akebono' nowhere near open yet.

    I drove past several trees that I think are 'Whitcomb' just south of Kingsway, I think at Patterson, in an apartment garden.

    Shirofugen is in bloom in front of Academic Quadrangle building, SFU, totalling 17 trees. I took pictures at 2 pm this afternoon. As it was windy there, flowers might not stay longer, so any cherry flower lovers should be hurry up to see the last glory of spring this weekend.

    Next to Shirofugen trees in SFU, there were 3 Pink Perfection at the corner; however, they began to fade and fall down. These trees look not healthy. Fortunately, 17 Pink Perfection trees have been planted, about 50 ft away from Shirofugen grove eastward.
    [Edited by wcutler 2016apr12] The 17 trees were photographed in April 2016, seem to be 'Kanzan'.

    Okame in full bloom at 6074 Charles Street, west of Fell on March 29, 2013. Interesting graft bottom on what appears to be an old-timer. First sighting of Okame in Burnaby.

    Such a large tree, and it doesn't even look sick, or were you just very careful with your photos?

    And what else is happening on that block - is that three 'Akebono' not yet in bloom just down from the 'Okame', between Fell and Stratford?

    That's a new area for our map.

    The Okame looked well all around; I wondered if that low grafting helped. There is another cherry right next to it, even larger but just setting buds. The Akebonos down the street are also just in bud.

    Central Park

    Just a block north of Central Park up from the Patterson Skytrain station is this street with an impressive display of Akebono blossoms that seems to be much appreciated by those living or working nearby.

    Keiko Parker wrote to the festival asking us to add to our map the five rows of 'Akebono' trees in park-like landscaping outside apartments or condominiums in the 4300 block of Buchanan, at Rosser. She doesn't want to be a cherry scout, doesn't want to learn to post, and they're too good to not tell you about, so here are the photos she sent. I've added the location to the map.

    I found these on google street view and asked her if they were the ones (actually, it's clearer in Satellite view). She replied
    Keiko also notes that there is a 4-block length of cherry blossoms on both sides of Georgia Street from Gilmore to Willingdon.

    This is a posting of photos for the map. Almost a week ago, April 1, I was driving to a meeting in Burnaby, somewhat late. On my route were 'Akebono' at on 17th Avenue at 18th St (I saw them as I drove past, went around the corner to get the photo); then west side of Griffiths just north of Kingsway.

    The next is on Walker, south of Imperial, several 'Akebono' on one side of the street. About two blocks further south at McBride St, seem to be two more 'Akebono', according to Google street view, or maybe those are the trees in the background. And last, on Stanley at Leibly.

    Darcy Olson entered to our map this nice 'Yae-beni-shidare' in a front yard on the south side of Brentlawn between Beta and Delta Aves.

    Catherine Baker is visiting grandchildren in Burnaby and sent along these photos to the festival, 'Akebono' on Sussex north for two blocks from Shepherd.
