The Beatty Mews Kanzan shedding their petals for a pink carpet on the walkway.
Here is a somewhat ungainly-looking 'Shirotae' that is opening its flowers early. It's on the corner of a row of five historical houses on Helmcken at Richards.
Won't be long until the 'Shirotae' on Menchion Mews in Coal Harbour are in bloom.
It's 'Akebono' season.
On Georgia St, east of Denman.
On Bayshore Drive, 'Akebono' with fountains.
The David Lam Park Akebono are looking spectacular. Try to catch them while the weather is good!
Finally had access restored so will be doing multiple posts showing the progress of the earliest blooming akebono downtown at Jardines Lookout near the VPL Central Branch over the past few weeks to today when they are nearing the end.
These are the blossom buds back on March 5. First signs of spring when it was full on winter everywhere else downtown.
Two weeks later, the Jardines Lookout Akebono started to blossom while everywhere else was still quite dormant - Coopers Park, Marinaside Seawall, most of David Lam Park.

Two weeks later on April 5-7, these akebono at Jardines Lookout were in full blossom. Earliest this year in Yaletown. (all done today April 16 though).
