    February 12, after several days of freezing temperatures (daytimes around 0 degrees celsius; nights I think around minus 5, not sure) and several days of snow that has only amounted to maybe 5cm in the West End, I was not expecting to see much colour left on these 'Whitcomb' trees at Nicola Mini-Park, but they still look pretty impressive, definitely a splash of colour under the snow. Sure, some of the flowers have gone brown, but they've been hanging on for a month now, so they still seem to be doing pretty well.

    Here are a few more snow photos, no flowers, just easy-to-see tree structures.

    'Spire' cherry, the upright one, looks better in this photo than usual; 'Shiro-fugen' cherry, looks better when it's in bloom. Interesting how the snow emphasizes the terrible graft union.
