    A nice mix of cherries and plums on this street ... the pinkish trees are plums.

    A nice long street on fairly young Akebono cheeries. This should be a spectacular street in a few years.

    So far I think this is my favorite street in Marpole ... it is truly spectacular, particuarly this afternoon with the dark clouds and mid afternoon sun.

    Well, I was looking for Maple Grove Park, which I was told was on Maple, which I thought was east of Arbutus. There's nothing like being lost for finding great things. Everything was exciting around here, but maybe the most was a 100-year-old Avium that's not in bloom yet but I didn't even remember that. It's in a back yard at 66th and Adera, is the only remaining tree from an orchard that used to be around there. The area was developed in the 1920's and 30's. The owner doesn't get fruit from it any more as whatever it does produce is too high up and the birds get it all.
    20080413_Adera66th_Avium_Cutler_3389r.jpg 20080413_Adera66th_Avium_Cutler_3392r.jpg

    Just catty corner, the block from Adera west along 66th has five Tai Haku in full bloom, three Accolades well past bloom (not pictured) and an upright baby ungrafted tree that looks like it will have pink flowers.

    20080413_Adera66th_BabyUpright_Cutler_3371r.jpg 20080413_Adera66th_BabyUpright_Cutler_3375r.jpg

    A block away, on Adera at 65th, is a nice low Shirotae that has not been grafted. It has Shirotae sucker growth from the base. Joseph just saw this one too (I missed him again!) and we both commented how nice it was to photograph because we could get at the flowers straight on.

    There is one different cherry on this street ... [edited by wcutler 2011jan25: that one is different because it's what's left of the 'Kanzan' (nothing) after the Avium rootstock took over]

    >There is one different cherry on this street ...<

    Sweet cherry rootstock which has replaced the Japanese cherry. This is common.

    Mikuruma-gaeshi are actually located on West 63 Ave. from Ash to Heather St. and not on East 63 Ave. as indicated on cherry map.

    There are also one Mikuruma-gaeshi and three Takasago in the block from Ash to Cambie St.

    This is a particularly beautiful street once the blossoms are all out as several of the trees form an arch across the street.

    Will try to get photos on Tuesday afternoon after the rain.

    I noticed another street in full bloom between West 57th and 64th Avenue just west of Granville when I was going by on the bus on Sunday. I will check it out tomorrow.

    Here is an example of 2 different blossoms on the same tree! Notice the white blossoms in the lower right corner and the normal pink blossoms in the top left corner of the photo on the right! The tree on the far left in the other photo is the one with the 2 different blossoms. Apparently this happens when the root stock sprouts are not cut off right away ... in some cases they can take over the entire tree.

    I observed these trees this afternoon on walk to shop at Choices Market. Sorry there are no photos as I did not have my camera with me. However, I thought people should know about this area with its several streets of Kanzans. I will try to get back to photograph the trees in the next few day, but I cannot promise anything.
