It's hard to tell what things are just from a buds photo, but this location should be 'Akebono'.
'Spire' starting to bloom at Esso Gas Station on Davie and Burrard.
Two 'Umineko' sandwiching a 'Shirotae' on south side of Pendrell, east of Cardero.
'Whitcomb' at Devonian Harbour Park is looking better than ever. Go figure.
And just for good measure, the 'Rancho' on Davie Street have decided to bloom, too...with leaves.
City Living. 9234 The rain drop hanging from the cherry bud reflects a condo typical of what many of us live in.
You got it!
These things are so unruly this year. The first to bloom looking excellent at the same time as mid-season cultivars are out. I was assured as a young scout that these things would bloom in order, at least in the same neighbourhood.
Row of 'Snow Goose' in Ceperley Meadow, along bike path. Seventeen trees blooming, and one that is not.
Blooming now at 1355 Pendrell St.
Found a couple more 'Yae-beni-shidare' on west side of Cardero, between Burnaby and Harwood.
One of my favourite 'Akebono' in the west end. Located on the south side of Beach, at Broughton.
Always makes me smile.
In addition to the two on Cardero, there are two more young 'Yae-beni-shidare' at the same property. These two are on the south side of Burnaby, west of Cardero.
Morning light on 'Akebono'
There are only two 'Takasago' left on Beach between Cardero and Bidwell. Starting to bloom.
Well they are behind last year, but not by much. Buds showing on 'Amanogawa' at Kensington Place.

These can be found on the North-West corner on Comox two trees down from the Comox/Gilford intersection. They are on or close to the trunk to eliminate the wind. I really liked the detail in this one. I saw the saw-tooth edges that I had missed. The wind has been a challenge. This shot is right on the trunk and that made it much easier to photograph.
'Takasago'. These run all along Comox, two or three trees on most blocks.
On Pendrell, similar-looking trees are 'Mikuruma-gaeshi', with mostly single flowers up to 6cm across. I think they're only west of Denman now. Much nicer trees than the 'Takasago' were all cut down from Thurlow to Denman a few years ago.
'Snow Goose' and Canada Goose at Ceperley Meadow in Stanley Park.
'Takasago' alley on Comox east of Gilford. Looking very fine today.
There are two 'Sendai-shidare' on the north side of Comox, east of Chilco. This one in sunlight.
And this one in shade.
'Shirotae' on pathway near Japanese War Memorial in Stanley Park. Plan your visit soon.
'Akebono' at Georgia Street entrance to Stanley Park. Ominous weather.
'Akebono' at Rose Garden in Stanley Park.
Not only looking fine, but they look less diseased than in previous years. There is still brown rot all over them, but there are lots of spots on the trees where you can get a beautiful photo with no disease in the picture. You can; I've tried for two days and can't seem to get a sharp image. And the time is just about gone when the buds are almost red, opening flowers are pink and open flowers are almost white.
