Spring and Summer photos dominate this “Photos of the Week” post. My favourite is probably the first because I waited a long time to get the shot of this beautiful hummingbird.
Taken in the Hummingbird garden at Summerland Ornamental Gardens, above Okanagan Lake. Make sure that you visit if you’re ever in south-central British Columbia, Canada.
This bright scene from earlier this year at the tulip garden outside the Stanley Park Pavilion in Vancouver, Canada.
Under stormy skies… Mount Cheam.
I was lucky to have a couple of hours here before the rains came in from the west. This past Spring at the Tulips of the Valley Festival, east of Vancouver.
Rose and evening sky…
Taken in a front yard, Vancouver.
A little Spring colour from one of the tulip gardens of Stanley Park.
A beautiful Vancouver sunset taken from one of my favourite places to watch on a hillside in neighbouring Burnaby!
On the shore of the Battleship Islands…
A favourite view looking toward the Black Tusk from my recent visit to Garibaldi Lake in Garibaldi Provincial Park, near Whistler, Canada.
Brightness and an old wooden fence…
Loved this scene at Roozengaarde Display Garden during the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington State, this past Spring.
I thought this was an interesting view with the vastly different colours of the water in, and adjacent to, the upper Joffre Lake. That is the Matier Glacier on the left. Taken last month on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, near Pemberton, Canada.
Simple, but I enjoyed this smaller variety of daffodil at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver.
Near the edge of Bow Lake in Banff National Park, Canada, this is Crowfoot Mountain. Can’t forget the fireweed too.
Here, I was under a giant rhododendron in very early Spring at VanDusen Botanical Garden. I have posted photos of fallen cherry blossom petals but never rhododendron petals.
Can you see the butterfly? She is a bit camouflaged. Taken on a beautiful afternoon along the Skyline Trail in Manning Provincial Park, Canada.
Although it’s not far from my home in Vancouver, I don’t get out to White Rock as much as I used to. When I do, I try to go during the evening for one of the beautiful sunsets!
I hope you enjoyed this weekly post of photos from my social media. I wish you a great week in your part of the World 🙂
