    'Akebono' at what is now named Larry Berg Flight Path Park seem to have established themselves (7 years after planting). There are two different sizes of trees - perhaps more trees have been planted since November, 2011.
    Interesting park, including mini-runway.

    Here is a new-to-us 'Yae-beni-shidare' that looks like it's not grafted. On Tilton at Murchison.

    'Whitcomb' are starting to bloom in Richmond, too. I noticed these trees at the west entrance of the Richmond Hospital.
    Also, another Anna's hummingbird looking for nectar.

    There is no stranger underneath the cherry tree. How true.

    I met Deely from Taiwan under the 'Akebono' at Garry Point Park in Richmond today. She was deliriously happy to experience the blossoms. It was contagious.

    Some pest control, too.

    Many thanks to Deely for sending me to Terra Nova Housing Co-operative in Richmond. Located on Westminster Highway west of No. 1 Road. It is LOADED with 'Akebono' for several blocks. A veritable maze of tunnels! Someone really likes 'Akebono'. Over 100 trees in the complex. Outstanding now.

    I think Terra Nova qualifies as a Festival Favourite site.

    Just around the corner from the mature ungrafted 'Yae-beni-shidare' in previous post #361,

    is a young grafted 'Yae-beni-shidare' on Riverdale, south of Tilton.

    This young tree has a higher bloom percentage. Photos taken on same afternoon.

    Precisely pruned 'Shiro-fugen' on NE corner of Maple Rd and Jaskow Gate.
    I love the colour combination of pale coral and rusty brown, at this moment.

    Five 'Shiro-fugen' at 9260 No 2 Rd., nicely framing the entrance to Covenant Court. Full bloom now.

    And five more 'Shiro-fugen' at the entrance to the Tapestry Church, also on No. 2 Rd, just south of Maple St.
    These young trees are planted quite close together.

    A line of Shiro-fugen trees on the north side of Moncton Street, just past Bayview, wave you on, making sure you're really leaving Steveston on April 29, 2019.
