    Just an update that the 3 Pink Perfection at SFU are really gone, so we may wish to remove favourite pin ID 1240.

    The Shiro-fugen are just starting the bloom and the Kanzan nearby are still behind the construction hoarding so probably will have to wait for the construction to be done before we decide whether they should be added to the map.

    There are a lot of young Akebono planted, such as these ones North of the Library, and South of the field and tennis courts along Gaglardi Way. Not many blossoms left so probably will wait till next year for pictures and adding to the map :)

    Along Centennial Way, towards the end towards the Burnaby Mountain Park parking lot, there's a row of young trees which look like Kanzan but interestingly, less dark pink than usual.

    And at the Burnaby Mountain Golf Course and Driving Range parking lot, the Ichihara-tora-no-o is in bloom with a Kanzan as its companion beside. Strangely, the Kanzan isn't on the map. You can see it behind the Ichihara-tora-no-o in the first picture :)

    I was late to a rehearsal last night when I passed this 'Shogetsu' on Burris across from Leibly. Judith Anderson, who lives very close by, was kind enough to send photos. This will be only the second 'Shogetsu' for Burnaby on our map.

    Last chance to catch the cherry blossoms at SFU!
    These were taken on Monday, and the Shiro-fugen still had some buds, but the leaves are green and June is almost here.

    The Kanzans at the Richard Bolton Park are almost gone with the strong winds over the past weekend.

    Nice.
    That’s what elevation can do.

    Yes, quite glad that SFU chose to plant some late blooming ones so that visitors for the convocation currently happening can enjoy the beauty too :)
