    Merry Christmas Everyone!

    A few ‘Accolade’ blossoms on the trees at Aquatic Centre today. The deep freeze is on it’s way. Brrr.

    Thanks, @Willard. I didn't see any flowers on these trees a few weeks ago when I looked (not very carefully).
    The 'Autumnalis Rosea' at the Pacific Heights Co-op have been flowering quite well. The first photo is from the 19th of December, second one is from yesterday, both times when I was in the car waiting for that long light at Burrard.

    Very sparse ‘Accolade’ blossoms at the Chilco Mini Park.

    Thanks. I was so cold, I forgot that I like to see snow on blossoms. I didn't even walk over there to check them out.

    I was so surprised to see all these flowers on the three 'Whitcomb' cherry trees at Nicola mini-park, especially after I just saw that cultivar at UBCBG with no flowers at all. And also especially after the cold spell, was that two weeks ago? And it's gone back to just above freezing at night, with cold clammy sun-less fog during the day, except for the past two days.
