My Best Guess

I like to keep track of what is blooming in the neighborhood of the MOP, but this does challenge my plant identification skills. I will just give my best guess here until one of you experts out there helps me out. This looks like a pink chestnut blossom.

The tree is overlooking North China Creek Park facing Burnaby Mountain.

The leaves have got me sunk on this one.

Columbines, poppies and "true" geraniums.

Buckets of rosemary blooms--one of the few plants that survived the winter here.

TWF's: Tiny white flowers with a silvery foliage. Any help identifying these would be greatly appreciated. Over and out.

  1. Aesculus carnea 'Briotii' - red Horsechestnut - you were quite right!
    The next looks suspiciously like a Hawthorn tree
    and the groundcover is Cerastium tomentosum (Snow-in-summer).
    cheers, Jean
