    My favourite 'Yae-beni-shidare' trees on 45th west of Mackenzie are in bloom now. The one that is more accessible is a particularly nice tree, either low-grafted or not grafted.

    Pretty group - three 'Akebono' trees at Maple Grove Park, easily visible as you drive by on Marine Drive.

    These 'Akebono' are on Beechwood, south from the 'Somei-yoshino' in a posting one or two back. This is the street looking north from 53rd.

    'Washi-no-o' showing signs of red-eye, but still worth a look. At Balsam and 47th.
    Petals are noticeably fringed.

    Compare with the single O-yama-zakura at Lord Strathcona Elementary:
