    It's only One, but the Big White, Tai Haku, dominates its corner and its house at Fleming and E. 39. April 19, 2009.

    A Shirotae in bloom at the east side of the school annex in Grey's Park - at about 32nd and Windsor:

    An emerging, very young Kanzan (as opposed to the very old Kanzans in the neighbourhood, which have not emerged yet), at the southeast corner of 30th & Windsor (the block with the young Akebonos):

    And my neighbour's espaliated Avium, behind the house at 996 Ringwood (@ Windsor):

    Although this grove of trees on the north side of E. 10, east of Lakewood, in the yard of Laura Secord Elementary, has finished blooming on April 23, 2009, there are enough blossoms left to tentatively identify them as Umineko.

    Re: Kensington/Cedar Cottage

    Walking south on St. Catherine's Street from Kingsway to 29th Ave., I was treated to the following:

    Kanzans, just beginning to bloom, from 22nd to 23rd:

    20090424_22StCatherine_Kanzan_Blumenthal_977.jpg 20090424_22StCatherine_Kanzan_Blumenthal_978.jpg 20090424_22StCatherine_Kanzan_Blumenthal_980.jpg 20090424_22StCatherine_Kanzan_Blumenthal_981.jpg

    A huge Avium at 23rd:

    20090424_23StCatherine_Avium_Blumenthal_982.jpg 20090424_23StCatherine_Avium_Blumenthal_984.jpg

    Older Kanzans, from 27th to 28th:

    Another huge Avium, at 28th:

    One of many beautiful Kanzan-scapes - looking North from 32nd & Dumfries:

    20090428_32Dumfries_Kanzan_Blumenthal_026.jpg 20090428_32Dumfries_Kanzan_Blumenthal_027.jpg

    And this block, which may be my favourite for this neighbourhood, discovered by Anne Eng last year, 29th Ave. just East of Knight Street, with Kanzans on one side of the street and Ukons on the other:

    Shirofugen - Kensington-Cedar Cottage, Victoria & E 26th in Brewers Park

    So nice to see such a beautiful cultivar in full bloom just as most of the others are coming to an end. There are three Shirofugens at the edge of this park.

    This Shirofugen at the southeast corner of Windsor and E. 31 has a monster right arm that's more than twice the length of its trunk. Reaching out to grab cars in the late afternoon sun on May 8, 2009.

    Kanzans run for two blocks north of 33rd on Commercial. These photos are looking up and down from 32nd.

    The next block over, on Beatrice, there are two nice Shirofugens in front of the Church on 32nd, and Kanzans again running for (at least) two blocks north of 33rd. Again, looking north and south from 32nd.

    Re: Kensington/Cedar Cottage

    Not 'Akebono'? The third photo seems to show staminodes in a blossom at the bottom right, and there's what looks like a clear one in the last photo.

    Yes, it is an Akebono in bloom on the north side of E. 12, halfway between Clark Drive (Knight changes name at this point) and Woodland. Two days after the previous posting, fallen blossoms show the extra petals.
