    The Akebono reference was a quote from 2017. I didn't see anything in bloom on the sunnier south side of City Hall. At least all the snow piles have melted now but the piles of road salt still needs to be put away! The Marinaside seawall Akebono were being pruned a couple of days ago. They will be popping soon enough.

    I wore myself out explaining to the other walkers on the walk this past Saturday why all of the nice trees they were seeing in bloom were plums, not cherries, when I spotted this lovely specimen which gave me the opportunity to SHOW them the difference. Unfortunately, though, I'm not sure I know what it is - an Akebono? Location: One half block west of Ontario on 15th, south side of the street.

    Hmm. Confusing - in your last post you showed photos of several trees in bloom - were they all from another year, or just the Akebono?

    In the park are supposed to be 'Pandora'. The tree shape looks right for that. It looks possible for the flowers, though there isn't much to go on yet.

    The two pictures are the Accolades this year by the north entrance of City Hall. The young Akebonos on the south side were not yet blooming (but could be soon)

    Oops - my bad - I was looking at the post from the previous year.

    The Pandora trees at Mount Pleasant Park are fully bloomed. I kinda remember there were three blooming trees at this location last year, but it seems the two trees at the entrance of the park are diseased (one didn't bloom at all this year, the second is only half bloom), which leaves one healthy tree for you to visit at this busy location that includes a garden, playground, and plenty of room for picnic.

    Cycling in the rain along Yukon I saw both a shirotae and akebono nicely in blossom around from the police station and then the grove of akebono on the south east corner side of city hall. Heads up that the Beatty Walk kanzan are budding so they might have a nice display of pink blossoms for the weekend of the Sun Run (April 14) and then easter Sunday (April 21). Will there still be akebono blossoms on W Georgia for the first km of the Sun Run?
