    With those long branches left untrimmed, it's also looking better than most trees of this cultivar.

    Yes, it was really pretty! We contemplated having a picnic hanami under it but decided not to haha..

    ID 3755 says there were 5 Shiro-fugen planted in Slocan Park. We only found 1 between 2 Akebono so now I'm thinking I may have to do a hunt Easter-egg style. Pictures of that one Shiro-fugen meanwhile. Starting to bloom.

    And the Kanzans along Rupert for the 17 blocks are also on their way. West side Kanzans are more in bloom than East side ones.

    Adding a couple more to the map. Kanzans near Falaise Park.

    There're a few along the road Normandy at junction of Worthington.

    And at Dieppe Pl, along both sides. Nice view of the mountain in between the young Akebono and old Kanzan through the gap :)

    Trying to figure out the best spot to take pictures of Rupert's triple row of Kanzans. Still can't really decide.
    The latest "intruders" are the Shiro-fugen trees, mostly planted along the middle road divider. Together with the random Akebonos and non-cherry trees, they are in the way most of the time :/

    22nd looking West has construction

    15th looking South allowed us to see the layers as it's uphill

    22nd looking North
    Kanzan_Rupert22ndNorth_Yong_20220423_IMG_9776.JPG

    25th looking North, possibly the best with minimal non-Kanzans and no construction

    More in bloom :)
    This Avium at Falaise Park offers a picnic with a great view. Should it be added to the map? Only 1 of it though.
    Avium FalaisePark_IMG_9869.JPG

    Avium Plena along 18th near Nootka are out. The second picture gives a nice size comparison Left Avium Plena, left back pink Kanzan, front centre another Avium Plena, right back Takasago not much pink left.

    Cariboo Park ones
    CaribooPark_Yong_20220428_IMG_9892.JPG
    Along 22nd, west of Renfrew, Kanzans. Should be good on a sunny day.

    Also at the same junction, there's Three Links which has Kanzan and Shirotae.

    Bus driver view along 22nd between Rupert and Windermere, one of our pinned favourites.

    Turns out the Kanzans along Rupert also include two-toned ones haha..

    Wellington East of Joyce has a few Kanzans lining the road too.

    We don't generally post single-flowered sweet cherries unless there is something really outstanding about them. This doesn't look old enough or big enough to get on the map, though the photo is really nice. Up to you.
    Well, they have been out since the beginning of the month! I think their flowers are the real longevity stars, at least this year.

    Easter hunt update: found 3 Akebono and 3 Shiro-fugen, just not planted together. The other 2 Shiro-fugen and 1 Akebono are nearer the 4 Snow Goose. I guess perhaps the rest that the City mentioned they planted had issues and are now possibly gone. There's a bee house on one of the Shiro-fugen near the Snow Goose. That probably explains why I saw many bees at the Snow Goose previously.

    Not the sunniest of days but it's a bit more sun than my previous visit. Kanzan triple row along 22nd at Renfrew and the Shirotae at Three Links (which are mostly gone now).

    The Kanzan and Shiro-fugen trees along Cassiar between 22nd to 24th are in bloom. The Avium had blossoms too but are too high for any acceptable photos.

    The rains have brought many pink carpets to the Rupert and East 22nd areas.
    Along 22nd between Rupert and Windermere as well as between Renfrew and Kaslo.

    Along Rupert, both pictures taken somewhere between 22nd and Anzio for the mountains to show as well.

    Location: E15th between Renfrew and Nootka
    Type: Ukon

    The yellowish White Ukon Cherry Blossom finally changed colour to show its reddish highlights.
    I know it’s almost the end of the bloom but I love this striking lights.
