    These are the Shiro-fugen trees that Nadia posted at #123. Their actual location is in Eburne Park, W.71st and Shaughnessy (east of Oak). It's a noisy location due to major traffic circles for SW Marine Drive and the Oak Street Bridge, not at all park-like. Still the trees don't seem to mind. In bloom at April 24, 2020.

    These two Shirotae have been allowed to spread their Shirotae wings on the south side of W. 71st, just west of Laurel, so still look very nice even though they are past peak bloom at April 24, 2020.

    Two Shiro-fugen on west side of Laurel, north of SW Marine Drive, past peak bloom at April 24, 2020. Finally got a picture of "phylloid (leafy) pistils...becoming stained rosy pink before falling" (Ornamental Cherries in Vancouver, p. 107)

    Shiro-fugen along the Cambie meridian, from W. 49th south to SW Marine Drive, extends through two neighbourhoods. These at W. 58th are in bloom at April 26, 2020.
