    Here is the new 'Shiro-fugen' at the RCMP headquarters, see Anne's posting #71, in bloom on April 15. This and the next photo were taken by Louisa Lo.

    We're concerned about this water reservoir in the trunk of the 'Jo-nioi' at the same location.

    Re: Riley Park

    I found an impressive pair of avium 'Plena' last weekend, at 737 W 23rd, east of Willow, west of the lane

    Keeping track of my photos isn't any easier than finding the trees. I see that I also found a 'Shiro-fugen' street tree on the east side of Ash, just north of the lane between 25th and King Edward.

    The festival favourite 'Accolade' trees on Laurel from 18th to 20th have not been posted here since 2008. They're worth a visit. I'm not sure I've ever even seen them before.

    Here's a 'Beni-shidare' nearby, on 18th east of Cambie.

    At the RCMP headquarters on W33rd and Heather, the Jo-nioi is blooming, but past it's peak.

    The Takasago is basically finished for the season.

    The 'J0-nioi' at the RCMP building on Heather at 33rd is about the same stage it was at in the previous posting, taken last year on April 10. These photos are from April 30. We only know of one other of these trees, at VanDusen, a short drive or walk from here.

    The photo in the quoted post is from 2015. Now, two years later, the 'Shiro-fugen' is filling out nicely. I think the point of my second photo was to show that it's low grafted, with 'Shiro-fugen' growth off the trunk, but it is grafted, with some other tree growing from the soil.

    'Choshu-hizakura' on 27th east of Ash has had a trim since last year. Still gorgeous.

    Keeping tabs on the trees at the RCMP headquarters on Heather at 33rd. It's two years since we've posted them. The 'Jo-nioi' is at peak bloom, smells lovely.

    The 'Takasago' is well past bloom, but the tree is still there.

    The new 'Shiro-fugen' has grown quite a bit, only a few flowers open so far.

    My Easter Parade route last weekend included West 39th from Willow to Cambie. Mike W. from the Vancouver Walking Meetup Group told me I was welcome to use his photo the 'Kanzan' trees all along 39th, Willow to Cambie.

    Thomas from the Vancouver Walking Meetup Group also posted some very nice photos, and told me I was welcome to use them on the forums and VCBF pages. All the rest of the photos in this posting are his.
    The tree photo here is also of the 'Kanzan' on 39th; I think the blossom photos are from these trees, but am not certain.

    I'd been wishing I had photographed the avium 'Plena' trees on Heather both ways from 39th; Thomas posted this photo, which I am happy to be able to use on the festival Blooming Now page.

    On the southwest corner of 39th and Heather is what I take to be half a 'Shiro-fugen', but it's a good large half, and it's not on the map, but will be soon.

    At the end of our walk, on 39th just east of Ash, is one of these great "magic" trees with two kinds of flowers. The avium rootstock has mostly taken over, but the 'Kanzan' is still hanging in there.
