Four (4) 'Kanzan' at Port Moody's Mountain Meadows elementary
Noonscreek, north of Falcon
Row of what I think are three(3) small 'Kanzan' with an unknown Cherry (perhaps a sweet Cherry?) towering over them. Nice combination of colors that brighten my day when I come home from work.
The 'Kanzan' are deceptively small, and the other Cherries have not been grafted.
Yes, sweet cherry. Note (in your nice clear blossom photo) the sepals folded back against the calyces.

A beautiful spot with Akebono at City of Port Moody. It is a landmark of Port Moody.
The Blue Trees.
Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos along with the help of local volunteers coated tree trunks and the undersides of branches of 17 trees in Port Moody. The coating, a biologically safe colourant, washes off causing no harm to the trees or the environment and allows the trees to revert back to their natural state over time.
Blue Trees were created to highlight worldwide social and environmental issues.
“Every year the globe is deforested of some 800,000 miles of old forests, trees which sustain life on earth,” says Dimopolous. “The object of this installation is to generate discussion about trees.... The fact that blue is a colour that is not naturally identified with trees suggests to the viewer that something unusual, something out of the ordinary is happening. It becomes a magical transformation. Dimopolous explains that, in nature colour is used to defend, protect and attract. “The Blue Trees attempts to waken a similar response from viewers.”
