    @Willard and I have @Josie NewWest to thank for a spectacular day of cherry scouting today, particularly because she phoned me back right away when I emailed her to say that we could not find the trees she told me about at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 20370 82 Ave in Langley. It turns out that we were at a church building at 200 Street, but we wanted to go to the temple, which is up at 20370 82 Ave, just before 204 Street. I guess these 18 robust-looking trees have to be 'Shogetsu', with their fringe-edged petals and emerging bright green leaves. What gives me pause are the vigour of the trees, density of the flowers, the not overly long flower stalks (could be explained by the cold weather), and the not particularly large sepals.

    Just to make me really uneasy about the ID are the sort-of bronze emerging leaves in the first photo here, but then all the ones I actually noticed at the time were green, photo below and above.

    On our first attempt at finding The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 20370 82 Ave we landed at 20030 82 Ave and found only two 'Kanzan'.
    Fortunately Josie replied to our SOS and sorted us out.

    This was an utterly uplifting experience for me. I will never forget it.
    Many thanks to Josie for the heads up!
    And always, thanks to Wendy Cutler for sharing her passion for cherry blossoms.

    On our way to 10198 Allard Cr in Langley we spotted this old 'Kanzan' in a rustic setting at Derby Reach Park. Very rustic.
