    Are you kidding? I'm trying to get them all open before the festival starts! I think we will get everything except Birch Bark Cherry and maybe 'Shujaku', your posting of a couple of flowers in Dunbar notwithstanding.

    Although its comrades along E. 26 have all gone green, the last Sargent Hybrid is finishing its bloom at the corner of E. 26 and Prince Albert, on April 1, 2015.

    New street tree planting: 2 baby 'Akebono' trees, on the south side of 29th Ave., just west of Ross St., (where the 'Kanzan' forest is):

    'Somei-yoshino' tree (?) (that sure looks like an 'Akebono', but I couldn't get up close without trespassing) on private property, at 808 E. 28th Ave.:

    ... and the incredible planting just south of King Edward on Elgin Street appears to be popping, but I didn't have time to walk down there yet. Here's a sneak peek:
