I will go look - thank you for that tip
One ‘Shiro-fugen’ on Franklin at Gower Pt Rd and two more on Franklin and Cochrane
Pair of 'Shiro-fugen' at Franklin and Cochrane.
Willard has put markers on the map for all the postings, and I have redone the listing, as a pdf file. I didn't see a way to do a title. Those blooming dates are pretty approximate, by which I mean I looked at them only occasionally and mostly used the same dates for everywhere.
Cute little petal duckling “Mallard”
I have not seen any nesting adjacent to ditches around here this year - often the male & female are very protective - startled me a few times walking / cycling
The pair of 'Shiro-fugen' at Franklin and Cochrane are going out with a Big Last Hurrah.
I love the character of that trunk also S. So glad you photographed that as well.
Yes, that trunk is punching above it's weight. Huge wingspan on that tree, and the trunk has a big scar on it from a missing limb.
Yes those are stunning today too
I believe the large plantings would have been approx 15 yr ago and specified by prof landscape architect Ms Judith Reeves
I cringed when I saw a similar tree up on Franklin nr Gower with IVY growing up the trunk - argh!
Did you see Mariko's posting that included photos before and after of a 'Somei-yoshino' that broke in half at Koishikawa Botanical Garden? Zoom in on the 2021 photo.
All green leaves still
Some at the Super Valu mall are turning orange leaves
@Willard - thé photo attached is at the back entrance to Super Valu store —- I think it was a multi pink / white blossom branch tree in spring 2021
And the fuzzy green top is the result of the infamous (cringe) Gibsons Haircut
I can’t find a bloom photo of this tree
Maybe you have one?
Yes, I do. See posting from April 19, 2019.
Yes indeed —- I do not know how to link to a specific post so I just took a screenshot
I was recently at a meeting where person with a truck and power tools was talking about « rounding everything off «
Regardless of bloom old or new wood etc
Incl J Maples and rhodos
Here is @Willard 2019 spring BLOSSOM (root stock and graft) photo screen image and a recent sprouting green leafy photo just for interest
