    From the (almost) sublime to the ridiculous.

    [From 86 Ave & 151A St to the end of Spenser Dr]
    'Akebono' trees line the entire several blocks of the curvy street.

    I noticed this relatively young 'Akebono' looks too flat (or concaved) compared to the others nearby. I found that its growth used to be suppressed by the branches of the cedar tree until they were cut recently.

    Here is the Google Street View, probably from sometime within a year.

    There aren't too many flowers yet, but I captured some clear photos.
    'Autumnalis Rosea', it is.

    [15658 102B Ave.]
    'Ukon' in 50-60% bloom.

    [10340 152 St, parking lot near Tim Hortons]
    I first thought this was 'Pink Perfection', but it must be 'Kanzan' based on the uniform colour of the blossoms.

    'Tai-haku', true to its name, boasts truly large and impressive flowers.

    And the very bronze leaves would indicate 'Kanzan'.

    It was already evening when I noticed this tree on Clark Drive at Fairlight Crescent in North Delta. I was having trouble accepting it as 'Shirotae' because there seemed to be so much upright growth, but I ruled out 'Ukon' because of the complete absence of green or red striping on flowers past their prime, and ruled out 'Ichiyo' because of the absence of phylloid pistils, and none of the more rare trees we know seemed to really fit. Here is a group of trees with the typical 'Shirotae' habit I see: https://forums.botanicalgarden.ubc....e-lamirage_cutler_20220411_135852-jpg.226367/. I have finally decided that the upright growth is the result of pruning-caused suckers that have grown enough that they fooled me into thinking they were the natural habit.

    Well, now I have decided it's 'Ukon'. I remember thinking it was not as white as a sweet cherry off in the distance. Last night, the petals on the ground seemed more green than 'Shirotae' would be.
