    Nice to see good-looking trees nearby.

    Two 'Yae-beni-shidare' trees, a favourite spot on the map, are not quite ready. Many branches don't even show a sign of buds.

    Must be nice to have this 'Akebono' in the private yard.

    Stripped meaning what? Thinned?

    They're ready.

    I think the fungus on this tree is not a good sign.

    This marking was on the boulevard outside one of these houses, am wondering what it means.

    Here's a nice view down Carnarvon Street south of 45th Avenue. It was previously reported in the Dunbar neighbourhood.

    The 'Ukon' grove on the west side of Yew (between W. 42 and W.43) is in full bloom at April 7, 2024.

    It was a gusty morning, but a passerby kindly held a twig for the blossom shot, with promises of anonymity for her fingers visible in the upper left. So, not only do you have to time for bloom, rain, traffic, but now, wind and the kindness of strangers as well. I hope Wendy appreciates the imponderable conditions under which cherry scouts must work to give her good blog material!

    Totally appreciated. [Imagine star emoji here].
    Actually, this blog belongs to everyone who posts here.
    And as for the Blooming Now - Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (vcbf.ca) page, I already yesterday used one of your 'Ukon' blossom photos as a feature at the top of the page, and I've added the group photo to the Favourites in Bloom section, AND, I changed the map link to go to your posting, since it wasn't showing the photos that it linked to originally, a feature of many of the map entries done around 2016.

    The 'Shogetsu' on the west side of Yew, at the T-intersection with W. 43rd, hasn't given a peak bloom looking this good for a long time. If the evergreen behind it were a pine, instead of a Western red cedar, we would have a perfect caption. At April 18, 2024.
