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

    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.

    I remember that tree - they always used to prune it so short; now it looks a lot better.

    We must give Takasago some credit for hanging around and giving a rosy perspective to E. 46th from Killarney to Raleigh, to counter all that green in Killarney Park. At April 24, 2020.
