    Autumnalis is still doing well. It must have lasted more than two months already. Amazing! You can see them in 7151 Moffatt road, the Venturi Park Court.

    We "discovered" nine beautiful Pandora cherry trees on 8655 Jones Road, Richmond. The flowers are in full bloom--probably have just peaked. Lots of bees busy working, producing a rather audible hum.

    There is one white single pendulous cherry tree on the front yard of 7617 Acheson Street, Richmond. Can it be a Sendai-shidare?

    There are five Birch Bark Cherry trees on the front of 8291 General Currie Road, Richmond. They are all fully grown.

    About 12 Whitcombs fencing the Alderwood Place at 8705 General Currie Road. You can clearly see them blooming from the fire lane of neighborhood.

    It's too early for 'Sendai-shidare', and it doesn't have the long thin sepals of that cultivar. But I can't tell you what it is.

    Three Somei-yoshino are blooming in Richmond. One is on the Westminster Hwy in front of the Bay, the other two are on the dividing island of Minoru Blvd, in front of west gate of Richmond Center. Both are very close to the intersection of Westminster hwy and Minoru Blvd.

    Spire

    There are five spires in Livingston Place (From Camstock turn right to Livingston Place, at the straight end turn left) and are blooming now on both side of the road (3 on the right and 2 left). A little fragrant.

    An "Accolade Grove"
    There are 18 blooming Accolades inside Granville Park, 6833 Livingstone Place, Richmond (From Gilbert turn right into Comstock and then another right onto Livingston Place). Apparently. the recent warm weather has pushed them to quickly peak. It is awesome to walk in the courtyard to see the flowering trees "reveal" themselves one by one. Of the eighteen trees, four largest ones were just inside the fence facing the Livingstone Place. Additionally, there are six Accolade trees around the community, two on Gilbert which we reported previously, and two on Comstock and Livingstone Place respectively.

    Accolade in Minoru Park has peaked. The rich pink flowers look so beautiful against the fresh willow greens!

    Somei-yoshino in Minoru Park!
    There is a somei-yoshino in Minoru Park by the little path leading towards Minoru Chapel. It is about 80% open, similar to the ones near Richmond Center which we reported yesterday.

    Yae-Beni-shidare
    There are two Yae-Beni-shidare near Minoru Chapel, Minoru Park. The first flowers has just opened up. Give another week or so, they would be perfect for viewing.

    Akebono' s Time has come--finally!
    After much waiting, we finally see the flowers of Akebono coming out fast! Today, we saw the flowers on the parking lots of the Track field, senior center and on 7500 Granville have begun to open. In a few days, there should be a sea of Akebono flowers.

    I think it might be snow fountain cherry. It reminds me that I took one photo of this in Van Dusen Garden last year.

    I think it's Snow Fountains too (that's the trademark name - 'Snofozam' is the cultivar name), but I don't have a very good idea of what distinguishes that, except for white and weeping.

    Thanks for the posting, though. I also had no data on which to base the blooming date on the festival map, and I think I was way late. I've moved them all up* to show as starting to bloom April 1 (except for in Richmond, which is clearly in the deep south as far as blooming times are running). The * means I've theoretically moved them up - there's only one on the map so far.

    Spire at Sandman Hotel
    Two Spire cherry trees are in full bloom in front of Sandman Hotel on Bridgeport Road. (Traveloge is on the other side of the street.) They are "mixed" in a group of (presumably) Amanogawa which have no flower showing as yet.

    27 Akebono trees blooming ...
    We counted 27 Akebono cherry trees in the parking area of a shopping mall on Bridgeport Road. (Pier 1 Import, Michaels, Tim Horton are some familiar names there.)

    Wow. From those photos, you'd almost think 'Spire' was a nice-looking tree.
