    i've noticed these 2 trees for a few years now and still have not figured out who they are. spindly trees in the parking median at Spanish Banks East. single pink or maybe more white

    another day another cherry. This one overhangs the bike path between Locarno and Jericho. The sepals are not recurved so not a sweet cherry. looks similar to the one at spanish east.

    Also hairy stems. Looks like 'Somei-yoshino' to me.

    One 'Kanzan' at Jean Beaty Park. Quintessential.
