    Beautiful rows of 'Ukon" along Churchill street. I noticed them as I was driving home along 49th ave. They have the overall affect of a light green colour, -Ukon meaning Tumeric- but on the close up pictures, the colour is more white, an the centres are fading to pink. Lovely old specimens along this block.

    Janice Lin, of the Green Club of BC, sent along photos taken by Gako Lin, I think within the last few days (I made up the date in the photo names), the same trees in the posting just previous, on Churchill at 49th. Her scouts were impressed with the amount of green in the flowers, but Janice does assume that these are really 'Ukon'.
