This has been a spectacular year for dogwood trees, and here’s a Cornus Florida Rubra or pink dogwood with a fantastic show on Larch Street in Kerrisdale.  And just north of this is a mystery sidewalk~there are actually two sidewalks in this well manicured block of street trees, one at the private property line, and one at the street. But why?

Take a look further north where the street is wider. Somehow this section of street escaped the widening fate, providing  a more pleasant experience for sidewalk users with a wider boulevard, and of course, the optional choice of two sidewalks.
