    This is what the Mountain Cherry likes: first a cold spell; then lots of space, sun and worshippers at its feet. Yama-zakura in full bloom in Killarney Park (east side of Raleigh and E. 47th) at April 12, 2021. In deference to her dignity, I have not included a picture of the woman carrying a step-stool along with her camera.

    A row of Takasago are in full bloom now, located from 49th to 51th Ave. on Vivian street. Can't imagine how beautiful the late stage blossoms of Takasago still are. They are very health , even still covered with moss on all of the branches.
    Photo taken by Sunny Chen and Janice on 4/20.

    Seven Akebono are going out of the season on 3280 Rosemont Dr.. The flowers looked like reddish bells on the tree. I didn't realize the last stage of Akebono are beautiful too, on 4/20.

    It's very strange. A lot of the trees are a lot more pink than I remember - usually, I guess when it's later, the petals drop off before going so pink. I've noticed 'Takasago' still with all their flowers, but very pink. Isn't it really unusual to still have all these flowers still on 'Akebono' when 'Shiro-fugen' are out?

    The third photo just above looks very much like one @Yong posted at Coquitlam. But in hers, the rest of the group of trees looked very different from that one tree.
