'Kanzan' in full glorious bloom on E28th , east and west of Penticton.
The Ukon trees along south side of E. 15th Avenue, east of Renfrew in full bloom at April 23, 2019. Some blossoms already showing red-eye centres.
Two Shirofugen trees on E. 16th, one on each side of Lillooet, are in full bloom at April 23, 2019.
They look deceptively good from a distance, but are older trees, spreading broad at the top (the canopy) and thick at the bottom (worn trunk)—the unmistakable signs of age in both trees and humans.
@Willard and I saw this 'Kanzan' arch on 38th from Nanaimo to Clarendon two years ago, but it's not like we remember each street of these trees. Yesterday, we had a long agenda, but when we passed by these, we drove around the block to drive through them.
I was driving east on 22nd, had to drive around the block to check out some 'Shiro-fugen' trees on Cassiar to the south. There are three somewhat young ones on the west side of Cassiar at 22nd, and a block of them on the east side of Cassiar south from 23rd.
The block of 23rd from Skeena to Cassiar seems to be 'Akebono' on both sides. First photo is from Skeena.
Back to Cassiar, at 23rd to 22nd are three big old 'Kanzan' and then three big old avium, sweet cherries, tall enough that I thought avium 'Plena', but they're not.
The 'Kanzan' triple row on Rupert, from 12th to 29th, is surely finished by now, but I just saw an impressive aerial view on Facebook posted by the Georgia Strait (newspaper). It credits the photo to @noyocreative - https://instagram.com/noyocreative — at East Vancouver. [Edited - the photo link originally went to the newspaper, but that link has expired; now the link goes directly to the Instagram photo - wcutler].
Windermere Secondary's square of Somei-Yoshino just past peak bloom at April 1, 2020 (E.27 and Lillooet-Windermere)
The four gosling trees of Snow Goose are in fine fettle in Slocan Park (SE Slocan and E. 29th) April 4, 2020.
The eagle tails of Washi-no-o have begun to emerge along the west side of Nootka at E. 25th, April 4, 2020.
