    Photos from April 18, trying to get lost on my way home. Here is a tree I got all excited about on my way past, thinking it was 'Shogetsu', but it's a 'Shiro-fugen', on Grange east of Wilson. It looked more white from the car.

    Nearby on Chaffey at Burke is block of 'Kanzan' along one side of the street.

    I have never been to the part of Burnaby north of Burnaby Lake and am amazed at how beautiful Lynndale Crescent is. I only had time to walk from the south end to the north, didn't have time to check out the neighbouring streets. It would be nice to go back at a time when the trees are blossoming.

    At the south end of Lynndale Crescent there is a footpath that connects to Winston Street. Near the footpath, at 3643 and 3639 are three upright trees with narrow crown. The blossoms are at their last gasp, since they are so upright, I think they are 'Kiku-zakura.'

    A few houses to the north, at 3619 Lynndale Crescent is a very beautiful tree that looks like a 'Beni-shidare.' And in the front lawn of 3615 is a large 'Kanzan.'

    The block of Edison west of Lynndale (a cul-de-sac) has 'Kanzan' on both sides of the road that will look quite beautiful when in bloom. On the other (east) side of Lynndale, the block of Portage (another cul-de-sac) also has 'Kanzan' on both sides.

    I missed the picture of the 'Beni-shidare' in the previous post. Here it is.

    Those are 'Kanzan', so upright because all the nice flowy branches have been pruned off. 'Kiku-zakura' petals would be much smaller, to fit in so many more petals into flowers that are much smaller than 'Kanzan'.

    I hope someone will photograph flowers on the 'Beni-shidare' next spring to confirm the ID.

    My favorite Yae-beni-shidare is in bloom on Duthie (corner of Curtis). It's facing West so the light is always perfect for photographs. It's near a bus stop - not great for wide shots but perfect for close-ups.

    There's a small Yae-beni-shidare located on the front lawn of a residence at 1675 Duthie.

    A medium-size Yae-beni-shidare is partially hidden by a fence in a private driveway at 1591 Duthie.

    There's a medium-size Beni-Shidare at Trudy Court (corner of Aubrey), just off Duthie, in the front lawn of a residence.
