    There's a nice relatively new row of Kanzans on Nootka at the intersection of 15th too. Give them a few years and they will get bigger.

    'Ama-no-gawa' on the east side of Nanaimo, south of E. 29 has passed peak bloom at May 2, 2023. Looking very vigorous and fastigiate.

    Unable to find this Shogetsu. There's a dead-looking cherry tree in the house though so that might be the Shogetsu unfortunately ID.3184

    It may not be Wendy's favourite cherry, and it's entirely too modest and inconspicuous for its own good, but the 'Autumnalis Rosea' in front of the McDonald's, on the north east corner of Grandview Highway and Renfrew, is blooming now at December 11, 2023, right near the end of the tenth lunar month.

    Lisa, right across from McDonald's is another cherry tree. It's the later blooming 'Shirotae' in the little mall on the northwest corner of Grandview Highway and Renfrew, as per this link #16. Look away!

    The 'Somei-Yoshino' trees in the yard of Windermere Secondary (Windermere and E.27) are at peak bloom on March 25, 2024.

    The blossoms on a few tree are especially large for 'Somei-Yoshino' trees. They look almost 'Akebono' size. In fact, have we been mistaken all these years, that they are all 'Somei-Yoshino'?

    I don't think we were mistaken, though I might have been the one who named them originally. Here is a posting I did 14 years ago: https://forums.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/threads/renfrew-collingwood.37755/page-2#post-248980.
    There is an 'Akebono' in that same posting that looks quite different. I'm starting to notice a lot of right angles in 'Somei-yoshino' structure, while 'Akebono' limbs seem generally to stretch outward. For instance, see @Willard's posting in Kerrisdale at https://forums.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/threads/kerrisdale.36008/page-8#post-441931. 'Akebono' branches seem more delicate. I know I have made some postings where I mentioned how large some of the 'Somei-yoshino' flowers were. The stars in the second-to-last photo look appropriate for 'Somei-yoshino'.
