    Off to the side of Queen Elizabeth Park's 7 Ukons along the Pitch and Putt golf course fence, is a tall, gangly cherry tree finishing its bloom on April 17, 2013.

    Most of the remaining flowers were very high, making it difficult to get good shots. From the plant material on the ground, one of the flowers had interesting red vein marking, although most of the flowers on the tree looked white with red eyes. With corymbs of 5 flowers, it was not a Somei-yoshino or Akebono.

    It did remind me of the Korean Hill Cherry at VanDusen, which I had shot on April 11 for VanDusen's Cherry Collection. I include its photos (last set of three pictures) for comparison and as a reminder to check out the QE tree earlier next year.
