    Ama-no-gawa goes where no cherry dares to go—four trees in a trench next to their building on the south side of King Edward (west side of Ash). Finishing off with a flourish at April 20, 2021.

    On the west side of Tupper, north of W. 24th, the Star Cherry offers shelter from the rain at March 26, 2022.

    On the grounds of the BC Women's and Children's Hospital, just outside the passageway between Brock Fahrni unit and Shaughnessy wing, there is a magnificent Shirotae, and a small one beside it.

    Wouldn't that be in the Riley Park neighbourhood? South Cambie seems to be west of Cambie.

    Tupper Street is one block west of Cambie Street, thus just sneaking in past the dividing line (Cambie) between South Cambie and Riley Park.
    So it is legitimately, if sneakily, in South Cambie neighbourhood.

    ‘Choshu-hizakura’ is in full bloom now, on 27th east of Ash.
    Fairy tale-like setting.

    Again on the grounds of the BC Children's and Women's Hospital, outside the passageway from Women's Hospital to Shaughnessy Wing, there are two 'Shirofugen' in full bloom and a large 'Kanzan' starting to fade:

    Also, in the Safeway parking lot at King Edward and Oak Street (SE corner), there is a small, but lovely 'Shirofugen':

    The Star Cherry tree on the west side of Tupper, north of W.24th is in full bloom (and dropping blossoms in the rain) at April 8, 2023.

    20230408_Star_TupperW24_Eng_7609.jpeg 20230408_Star_TupperW24_Eng_7612.jpeg 20230408_Star_TupperW24_Eng_7611.jpeg 20230408_Star_TupperW24_Eng_7613.jpeg

    The last photo shows not only the star shape of the flowers, but also their inrolling at the petal tips, "forming apparent soft points," an identifying feature of 'Stellata.' 2014 Ornamental Cherries of Vancouver, p. 29.

    Just around the corner on the south side of W. 24th is an 'Akebono', that looks pretty good, even defiant, dripping as it is with Vancouver rain.

    Still looks very good.

    The Jo-nioi at Heather and West 33rd is pruned and looks a bit awkward now. Still fragrant and blooming though.

    Two 'Shirofugen', one on each end of the Safeway mall parking lot at King Edward and Oak Street - one previously posted. Photos taken from the bus.
