    Jon has come through with the photos, so we'll have two markers on the map for this group.

    The ones on the inside are 'Shiro-fugen', and they have a lot of flowers remaining, with outstanding colour.

    The ones on the outside, with very few flowers left, are almost certainly 'Kanzan', or at least one of them is. There were no flowers on the other outside ones, so there might be another cultivar, as Nadia suggests.

    He Ying has put some markers on the festival map at Town Centre Park, does not want to do postings but has sent me photos. I have been convinced to post these photos, as we have so few postings from Coquitlam. I think these are all 'Akebono'. These are from the water spray park at Town Square Park.

    From the middle roundabout at Percy Perry Stadium.

    Here are more from He Ying at Town Square Park.
    North End of the Park.

    And Cunnings Field. I can't see these very well. I hope they are the same kind of trees.

    Alyssa Farkas put a marker on the festival map for these two very nice-looking 'Akebono' cherry trees in a front yard on Walker Street. I assumed it was her front yard, but I see she doesn't say that. She had a link to her Instagram posting, where she included this:
    And so the spring buds burst, and so I gaze,
    And so the blossoms fall, and so my days … – Uejima Onitsura ​

    Town Centre Akebono is in full bloom now! Also, three large...Shirotae(?) inside an apartment complex on 1199 Eastwood, about to come into bloom.

    The row of Akebono at Runnel @ Lansdowne Dr is also in bloom now. And so is the other complex across from there—Creekside Village, with more than 12 blooming Akebono inside the parking lot (2773 Barnet Hwy).

    1) My previous post re 'shirotae' at 1199 Eastwood. Photo was taken last week so could possibly still be in bloom.
    2) A colourful block of 'kanzan' and..sweet cherry(?) at Lansdowne and Steeple
    3) An interestingly pruned 'kanzan' also on Lansdowne
    4) Grove of 'akebono' at Coquitlam River Elementary from earlier this season, now over.
    5) A small seating area with 'akebono' canopy at Ungless and Newport, from earlier this season.
    6) Around 6 'kanzan' at the Sunwood Square plaza by Westwood parking lot entrance.
