    Yes, I only counted five Takasogo trees on Vivian Drive, in full bloom on April 7, 2016.

    Five young 'Shiro-fugen' on Killarney north of 46th. Planted in 2012.

    Here is one 'Accolade' on Blake St. east of Champlain Crescent at Garibaldi Drive, north side of the street. I'm not sure what you call this type of pruning, which I now notice is a thing, as it was done on my favourite 'Tai-haku'. Is there a name for that styling? The flowers were so pink that I thought it might be something else.

    There is also a later blooming tree next to it.

    Avium Plena's pleasing plenitude in Killarney: the other Killarney 'Plena' locations are done, but the west side of Kerr from E. 45 to E. 47 still has its line of trees in flower.

    Past peak bloom on April 28, 2019.
