'Shiro-fugen' in Kerrisdale - The community centre put on a Cherry Blossom Festival event today, under the 'Shiro-fugen' trees in bloom (not so usual for April 26!). You can see the new Petal Mats, which I'm calling "friendship mats", because they zip together. This whole block on 46th east of East Boulevard looks splendid, with as many flowers on the ground as on the trees, but still lots and lots of flowers on the trees. Those trees have a LOT of flowers. Here's a 'Kanzan' street for the map - I had it pending from last summer. There's a new 'Shiro-fugen' and new 'Kanzan'.
