I'm posting the link to this video here, since it mostly features the 'Shiro-fugen' grove in Callister Park across from the PNE. It's a drone fly-over made in the last week of April this year, featuring 'Shiro-fugen' and avium 'Plena' in a few locations around town. Video Credit: @thepatweir

'Shiro-fugen' trees are still doing their thing in Callister Park, with the addition of some pink snow.
On the Oxford Street side of the park, starting at Kaslo, are a row along Oxford and then a few more 'Akebono' trees that were planted by the Parks Board in 2016 in honour of the 10th anniversary of the VCBF. We could still use a photo for our map when these are in bloom! I guess if I were to make them a festival favourite, it would help them get noticed, but it's a bit soon.
Janice Lin sent along these photos taken by Gako Lin on May 7 of the 'Kiku-shidare' trees on Turner Street east of Nanaimo.
