    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.
