    Not a timely post, though there are still flowers on most of the 'Takasago' trees around town. These are new locations since March of this year.

    Kerrisdale: Vine, south of 41st; I posted these and I did not give them a good review. See photos.

    Victoria-Fraserview: west side of Argyle, north of E. 55th, one not bad-looking tree; photos.
    Vivian: 49th to 51st, has trees on both sides of the street. The west side is in Victoria-Fraserview. See photos

    West Point Grey: Bellevue at Tolmie, with five 'Mikuruma-gaeshi' at the other end of the block. See photos.
