    Here's a better close-up of the Ama-no-gawa I mentioned above, and the lone Kanzan at 30th & Windsor:

    That 'Ama-no-gawa' is pretty interesting as a shrub. I remember one year you (Anne) posted one and commented about the flowers being so high up for you to see - this one is the answer to that.

    Is it a whole bunch of trunks? And what's next to it - looks like it was supposed to be the same thing but is a whole bunch of avium trunks(?).

    Yes, it is Avium right next door.

    A bit further south, a single Kanzan:

    And a few steps further south, another lone Kanzan:

    Over on St. Catherines, on the west side, just north of 31st, a huge Kanzan in a tangle of undergrowth:

    And then it was 7:00 and time to go home and bang pots and pans.

    Ian Cumming sent along this photo from his bike ride yesterday - he says the 'Kanzan' run on Dumfries from 32nd to 29th. He also included the map of his route.
    These should definitely be a festival favourite - they will be on the map in just a minute.

    Mikuruma-gaeshi is finishing its bloom. On the north side of Brock, west of Nanaimo at April 25, 2020. After a while, all the fading cherry tree blossoms start to look the same.
