    I am so late linking to Douglas Justice's April in the Garden 2022 - UBC Botanical Garden blog that a lot of what he wrote about, which were cherry and magnolia flowers, have finished now. There are tons of photos in the blog, though. And I posted the cherries that have flowers now at Ornamental Cherries at UBCBG 2022 | UBC Botanical Garden Forums.

    The magnolias have had their day. Here is a later one that had flowers two days ago: Magnolia sprengeri 'Diva'.

    At least I'm not too late for the eucalypts.
    Here is Eucalyptus pauciflora subsp. niphophila.

    And Eucalyptus perriniana.

    On the path in front of the E. perriniana is Sophora prostrata. I never seem to notice this when it's covered in leaves, which presumably does happen.
