    Ama-no-gawa goes where no cherry dares to go—four trees in a trench next to their building on the south side of King Edward (west side of Ash). Finishing off with a flourish at April 20, 2021.

    On the west side of Tupper, north of W. 24th, the Star Cherry offers shelter from the rain at March 26, 2022.

    On the grounds of the BC Women's and Children's Hospital, just outside the passageway between Brock Fahrni unit and Shaughnessy wing, there is a magnificent Shirotae, and a small one beside it.

    Wouldn't that be in the Riley Park neighbourhood? South Cambie seems to be west of Cambie.

    Tupper Street is one block west of Cambie Street, thus just sneaking in past the dividing line (Cambie) between South Cambie and Riley Park.
    So it is legitimately, if sneakily, in South Cambie neighbourhood.

    ‘Choshu-hizakura’ is in full bloom now, on 27th east of Ash.
    Fairy tale-like setting.

    Again on the grounds of the BC Children's and Women's Hospital, outside the passageway from Women's Hospital to Shaughnessy Wing, there are two 'Shirofugen' in full bloom and a large 'Kanzan' starting to fade:

    Also, in the Safeway parking lot at King Edward and Oak Street (SE corner), there is a small, but lovely 'Shirofugen':
