    Poor Strathcona gets very little attention. This is a good time to visit. The 'Shiro-fugen' cherries wrapping the corner at Union and Gore that last year were just opening on May 1 (look at how bronze the leaves are in last year's posting two above this one) are past peak bloom on April 20, with some flowers starting to turn pink.

    The block of 'Kanzan' a block to the east on Union still looks impressive.
