Thank YOU, Acerholic - you've given a new focus to my photos!
Kiku-shidare-zakura, the Weeping Chrysanthemum Cherry, is now in full bloom on the south side of E. 36th (between Knight and Culloden) at April 18, 2021. Last photo shows the extra sepals.
Today, I went a little nuts with the Kanzan photos. I started at 29th & Inverness, where you can see the first Kanzan of the festival favourite planting:
As you walk west towards Ross St., you see a few more, and a beautiful pink canopy overhead:
Then, when you stand in the traffic circle at 29th & Ross, you can see why this is a festival favourite. Here are the views to the east, south, and west, and the mountains to the north (with one distant Kanzan):
If you continue west, you will see that the one newer tree that has been planted to replace one that died and had to be removed is doing well, and the planting ends at Elgin:
On my walkabout today I visited the Shirofugen on Windsor & 31st, in full bloom:
A bit further south, near 33rd, I noticed that there is a young Kanzan doing very well where the Sargentii hybrid used to be:
Up at the Kensington Community Centre, at 37th & Dumfries, the Ukons are just past peak:
And the three Shirotaes around the corner are pretty much done:
Heading north on Dumfries, I was treated to this beautiful view:
And then I was treated to the amazing Kanzan planting that runs along Dumfries from 32nd to 28th (or just before):
Then I headed toward 29th & Knight for the Ukons:
And I couldn't help taking a few shots of the Kanzans at 29th & Ross again:
