    Whitcomb is finally out at the wee park at Sophia and 15th. Been watching these three trees for the past month......in fact it is around the same time last year that it came into bloom! Feb 12 last year.

    Thanks, Lisa. I don't see a photo from 2021, will have to believe you. My problem now is that these don't pass my "visible from two blocks away" rule for being considered "in bloom", so I have to figure out a date for the map. I don't see that the temperature is supposed to get up to 10C degrees in the next week, but it's still quite a way till the March 8 date I'd picked for most places except the West End and other tropical neighbourhoods.

    I'm still happy to have this teaser for the festival's Blooming Now - Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (vcbf.ca) page.

    The three 'Accolade' trees on the east side of Yukon (between W. 14th and 15th Avenue) are still there, but there is really only one good tree holding up, the other two are mere stick shadows of themselves. Reaching out to grasp the street lamp in its bloom at March 7, 2022.

    There was obvious clean-up and the flowers hid the rest of ill-effects.

    These pics were taken March 03 2023 just after the "record" snowfall., you can still see some of the snow on the ground. Lots of breakage on these old trees, but they were still trying to bloom! Anne's pics from March 29 are much nicer with all the pink!

    Yes, this is tea swamp park. When we walk to yoga we walk past here. I monitor these cherries almost year round!

    Shirotae is finally showing up in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. On the west side of Carolina, between E. 12 and E. 13th. In bloom at April 17, 2023, showing both white and pink buds.

    It appears to be a sturdy, mature little tree, as (for now) there is no action on the suckers evident in the last photo.

    It looks trapped but this 'Ama-no-ga-wa' isn't giving up without a fight, and until Mount Pleasant neighbourhood has another representative, this valiant "pillar cherry" in the alley behind Main Street (east side Main, between E. 14th and 15th) will hold the flag. Looking past peak bloom at April 28, 2023.
