    Ranchos - one on the east side of Windsor between 31st & 33rd, in front of the Slavic Baptist church, and a teenage one across Windsor at the side of McBride Annex (school):

    Just west of St. Catherine's on the south side of 33rd Ave., there's this beautiful pendula 'Yae-beni shidare', previously posted:

    We also have a sumptuous 'Shirotae', previously reported, in the back yard of private property facing a short lane parallel to and just south of 31st Ave., between Windsor and St. Catherine's, behind McBride Annex (school):

    And a baby Akebono just west of St. Catherine's on 31st Ave.:

    The little people seem to have occupied this Kanzan, which has not started to bloom yet:

    This one a little further north on St. Catherine's is just starting to bloom:

    Between Prince Albert and St. Catherine's, on 26th Ave. (closer to St. Catherine's), on both sides of the street, there are these trees, the younger ones of which are very high-grafted. I'm not sure whether they are Akebonos, Somei Yoshinos or something else entirely:

    Further east on 26th, between St. Catherine's and Windsor, this poor pendula Yae-beni Shidare is battling it out with a cedar hedge. The lion does not seem to be helping at all. Furthermore, the house, a Sears Craftsman-style house, is for sale, which may not bode well for the cherry tree or the house:

    At 29th & Ross, where the Kanzans will bloom in a couple of weeks, there are two scrawny little Akebonos holding their own:

    And here's another embattled pendula - this time just Beni Shidare, nearby, but I've forgotten where it was - maybe 28th & Ross:

    It's interesting to see that 'Kanzan' are at the same stage in this neighbourhood as in the West End.

    Actually, this is the only one that had any blossoms on it - it was a south-facing trunk, protected from the wind.

    Festival favourite Kanzans in three directions (west, south, & east) from 29th & Ross about 50% in bloom - root stock, too, in a couple of cases.

    Here is a drive-by - a block of 'Kanzan' across from John Hendry Park (Trout Lake Park) on Garden Drive at Grandview Highway.

    Here's a nice 'Kanzan' in foil foliage and 22nd & Windsor.
