    At least twenty "Shiro-fugen' in bloom at Callister Park. Definitely a festival favourite.

    'Fudan-zakura' on Nanaimo, south of Parker. Not showy, but it is starting to bloom.

    UBCBG Horticulture instructor @Egan Davis led a walk for the VCBF last Sunday, April 29, starting at the Momiji Garden at the PNE and ending shortly after Callister Park, where all the 'Shiro-fugen' were at peak bloom. We could not have planned that better, except maybe for the rain. Egan is in red, with the bicycle; Linda Poole, the festival director, is in the pink raincoat, with the pink phone.

    Egan was going to tell us something about all the sawdust he noticed under this tree, how it probably came from this nest, when the resident flicker popped her head out to scold him. I'm sorry I missed seeing that.

    We found out about the party too late.

    Egan pointed out lots of other trees on the walk. Most notable was this block of Dawn Redwood, Metasequoia glyptostroboides, on Cambridge at Kaslo.

    I carried on afterwards to visit the 'Kiku-zakura' on Turner east from Nanaimo. They are also at peak bloom now, should look pretty good for at least another week or two. The tree in the background is a 'Shiro-fugen'.
