    You win, first posting of the new season. I like seeing the flowers with the autumn leaves.

    Hmm, maybe they're at about the same stage everywhere now. Thanks.

    Thanks to @Douglas Justice, who wrote in the locations forum:
    this posting is all about "outstandingly beautiful" trees.
    I took advantage of having to drive to Delta to stop by to see them. Here are the 'Washi-no-o' street trees:
    20190408_ThirdAve1stSt_Washi-no-o_Cutler_183918.jpg 20190408_ThirdAve1stSt_Washi-no-o_Cutler_183956.jpg 20190408_ThirdAve1stSt_Washi-no-o_Cutler_183939.jpg

    In 2011, I posted three 'Washi-no-o' in Queen's Park, west side, on Granville at Vancouver St. They were very finished blooming, just enough flowers remaining to give me the idea of the ID.
    New Westminster
    I was excited to be able to see them again, as they are beautiful trees. My camera was not too happy about the rain, and several photos I thought I took didn't seem to record. I think I have a friend roped into getting more photos. Here is what I have:

    Driving along Queens on the way to First Street, we passed this huge stunning 'Shirotae' at 2nd St.

    This last 'Shirotae' is also impressive, a quick drive-by seen from Queen's at 10th Street. I did swing by closer to confirm the ID.

    Here is a photo from Joe Condie of the two 'Washi-no-o' at the road right at Vancouver Street.

    4 beautiful trees adorn the front of Devonshire Building on 8th in New Westminster across from Century House.

    Nice-looking 'Kanzan' trees (and dog). They are at just about the same stage of bloom as in the West End.

    @Willard and I have @Josie NewWest to thank for the recommendation to see the 'Kanzan' trees at Fraser Cemetery at Richmond and Cumberland in New West. On the west side of Richmond is St. Peter's Cemetery. It wasn't until we were about to leave that we realized they were two different cemeteries. I don't think either of us separated our photos by location; I'm definitely calling all of mine Fraser Cemetery.

    Is there any number of 'Kanzan' trees that are too many? This location might approach that number, but it's a pretty showy place right now, for the setting as well as the trees. I'm sure Shirley has photos she wants to post too - the place definitely merits the extra attention.

    There are a lot of big old trees, in good shape. I can't remember if the trunk here belongs to one of these trees.
    Kanzan_FraserCemetery_Cutler_20190425_133358.jpg Kanzan_FraserCemetery_Cutler_20190425_133525.jpg

    I didn't photograph the several failed 'Kanzan', the ones that are now just sweet cherries from the avium rootstock. Those were mostly at St. Peter's. But there are a few young trees around in both yards, and almost all of them look like they are going to turn into sweet cherries pretty quickly. It's such a shame, in a place like this where there is so much room for trees to spread out, that trees on poles get planted - a shame for what the trees look like and that the planted cultivar will so quickly disappear.

    I'll end on a brighter note. If you like 'Kanzan' trees, this place is spectacular.

    Power cherry scouting with Wendy Cutler - we got off to a great start at St. Patrick and Third.
    'Kanzan' galore! Extends for several blocks on St.Patrick and also several blocks both north and south on Third.

    There are some nice houses on St. Patrick - it's more than just an amazing arch of beautiful flowers.
    20190425_StPatrick_Kanzan_Cutler_124707.jpg
    Here are some of the 'Kanzan' on 3rd Street - they run from 6th Avenue down to Royal, should definitely have their own entry on the map. I'm pretty sure the first photo is looking south on 3rd Street - Shirley didn't want to photograph the garbage bins. I kind of like them. Second photo is alongside Tipperary Park.

    The road through Queen's Park at 3rd Ave was blocked off, but we were able to photograph the row of 'Kanzan' in the parking area there.
    20190425_1stSt3rdAve_Kanzan_Cutler_130629.jpg

    There are 'Ukon' at McBride and 6th Ave, have been photographed before and are on the map. But these 'Kanzan' just south from there on the west side of McBride should be added.

    Yes, we saw A LOT of 'Kanzan' at this location. I wonder how old the trees are.
