    The three 'Akebono' trees in the Cherry Grove are finishing their bloom and dropping petals at April 8, 2022. It is interesting that these flowers aren't showing the aging red eyes ("often stained rose red at the base") before petal fall.

    But the Somei-yoshino in the Cherry Grove, does show the red centres developing .

    Behind it, the 'Yama-zakura' is starting, while the 'Umineko' is just past peak bloom.

    Pine Crescent, between W. 34th and W. 35th is lined on both sides with mature trees of Avium Plena, starting their bloom at April 11, 2022.

    Lots of ‘Kanzan’ to view on Hudson, from Granville to Minto.

    'Royal Burgundy' is past peak bloom in VanDusen Garden at May 10, 2022.

    But it has a new leaf emerging, which, along with the colours of the sepals, are about the only 'burgundy' to be found on it. Older leaves are so dark, they look almost black.
