WPC Awakening – part two

with one comment

Yesterday I responded to the Weekly Photo Challenge with pictures of a Blooming Spring taken in 2015, basically because of the absence of sunshine and blue sky. I am pleased to report that conditions in Vancouver BC have recovered today – though the forecast is a return to rain tomorrow. However, I made the best of it, with an outdoor patio lunch and a brief walk through the neighborhood to get a car2go.

As usual I am not good at putting names on botanical objects, so by all means add the information – if you have it off the top of your head – by clicking on the image and leaving a comment on the picture’s flickr page. Thank you.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening

with 5 comments

“For nature-lovers, there are few things more wonderful than the awakening of life after a cold, gray winter. Spring is a glorious green renewal.”

Well, here in Vancouver it has been raining a lot, and the blossoms we saw yesterday were distinctly bedraggled. So this collection of images comes from March of 2015 when I took a walk around our neighbourhood and managed to collect a whole album of pictures which I entitled “Blooming Spring in Vancouver“. The awakening of the plant life is happening, of course, but under cloudy skies this year.
