    Thank you Willard. The strong wind this morning made any attempt of taking a closeup a challenge.

    Visitors to Graveley street (corner of Lillooet) will be disappointed this year. The Akebono are in bloom, but the road is closed due to construction.

    Here's what it looks like at the top:

    IMG_1423.jpg


    Then as you walk down the road, it's all construction.

    Here's a view from the bottom of the hill.


    IMG_1444.jpg

    It looks like some of the branches that were forming an archway over the street were cut to make room for the crane. So sad!

    It's hard to guess whether the residents are unhappy about the construction or happy to not have the throngs of people this year. It's a shame about the archway, though. I think I should make it not a favourite this year, will set a reminder to change it back to favourite next year.

    Accolade are fully bloomed on 5th and Lillooet. Looking beautiful with the Brentwood skyrises.

    Akebono (about 70% bloomed) form a archway at 6th and Slocan on a small hill.

    The partner and I did a walk around the area over the weekend and here are some photos to share as many are in bloom! Will add some markers to the map as well as there were hidden gems not on the map. Would also need help with ID for those I'm not entirely sure of, thanks!

    We found a nice grove of Accolades at Rupert Park, north west side, right next to the bus stop along Rupert St.

    If you walk along 7th between Lillooet and Renfrew, the Kanzans are not out yet, but you can find Akebonos amidst them near Nootka. Found this with the Akebono falling strategically over the bird house very cute!
    Akebono_7thNootka_Yong_20220328_IMG_9264.JPG
    And one young white one which I suspect may be Shirotae but will likely have to go back to confirm. Also along 7th but nearer Renfrew junction.
    7thRenfrew_Yong_20220327_IMG_9266.JPG

    These are private plantings but very pretty. ID help would be great.
    These 2 whites I suspect may be Snofozam.
    Snofozam_E7th_Yong_20220327_IMG_9259.JPG Snofozam_E7th_Yong_20220327_IMG_9260.JPG
    This I suspect might be Beni-shidare as they're single and small.
    Beni-shidare_Rupert7th_Yong_20220327_IMG_9255.JPG Beni-shidare_Rupert7th_Yong_20220327_IMG_9256.JPG

    Schmitt Cherries along 6th at Renfrew are so tall they're spectacular but flowers seem a bit sparse.

    Akebono at 6th Ave near Penticton
    It looks like close to full bloom.
    I feel like it’s blooming earlier than last year.

    Yes on the 'Beni-Shidare' and 'Shirotae'. I don't know how to distinguish 'Snofozam' from its look-alikes. Nice ttrees, though.

    Thanks!

    I thought I've posted about the Akebono and Accolade mix along 5th between Lillooet and Nootka but I probably missed them out. It was a bit of fun trying to guess which are Akebono and which Accolade without going near to see the flowers. Amazing mountain and cloud view too.

    Now is the time to visit Callister Park.
    ‘Shirofugen’ approaching peak bloom.
    Magnificent.

    There are ‘Kanzan’ blooming now as well.
    Sandwiching a ‘Shirofugen’ in this case.

    Help is needed to identify what cherries these are. The owner is adamant they're called "vestitigated" cherries. Google doesn't seem to recognise this phrase.

    An adjective that describes the habit (general shape) of these cherries is "fastigiate" - having branches sloping almost straight up, close to the trunk.

    Some locations pinned as "favourites" on the map are in bloom.

    Accolade Akebono mix along 5th Nootka
    AccoladeAkebono_5thNootka_Allen_20230402_IMG_3749.JPG Accolade_5thNootka_Yong_20230402_IMG_3255.JPG

    And Schmitt cherries at 6th and Kaslo have a few out but will probably need a week or 2 more to be in peak bloom.

    Most beautiful 'Yokihi' ever! On the east side of Slocan just north of Dundas. It is easily viewed from the property to the south, as it completely hangs over that yard, which has survey markers on it. This does not bode well - I can imagine everything overhanging the property being cut back. This is a single tree with a huge trunk, presumably low-grafted, growing out to either side of a large conifer.

    Noticed a lane of Kanzan not on the map. 2nd and Lillooet so will add to the map. A bit late for this year so more pink on the ground than on the trees.

    These two shots of Shiro-fugen were taken at Callister Park last week.

    Kanzan on E 2nd Ave (east of Lillooet) was in full bloom on May 02, 2023. I used to live in this neighbourhood.

    @Yong, StevenS captured the photos on time, just posted them late. I've added the link on the map to the posting just above, and made them a favourite.

    'Accolade' trees on E. 5th at Nootka are looking splendid.

    There are four 'Accolade' on the NW corner of Rupert Park Pitch & Putt. What they lack in numbers they make up for in charm.
    Accolade_RupertCharles-RupertPark_Cutler_20240318_155811.jpg Accolade_RupertCharles-RupertPark_Cutler_20240318_155847.jpg
    The fourth tree is a bit away from the others, and it did have a good swath of colour that I didn't manage to capture. It did demonstrate that at least this tree, and probably the others, is on its own ('Accolade') roots.

    There are 'Akebono' trees planted on the median on 1st Avenue, from where it begins at Nanaimo east at least past Nootka, where I turned off. Some are in bloom; others are only a day or two away considering the 15 C degree weather.

    The 'Fudan-zakura' on Nanaimo at Parker, this one on the east side of Nanaimo, is probably as fully in bloom as it will get.
