Spring Flowers, Snowy Scenes and a Walk in Victoria

April 12, 2018 — Leave a comment

A little late but as it does every year, Spring emerged and showed off the colours that makes it my favourite season. Between showers and storms, I was able to get out and enjoy a little sunshine, along with some much-needed exercise. Of course, I also took photos. This is a selection of my photos posted to social media in March.


Sure signs of Spring 🙂 Crocuses at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, Canada.




Fraser Valley sunsets… This is Mount Cheam from the community of Deroche.



Nicomen Slough near Deroche



Happy to see the Cherry Blossoms blooming…
Taken along Fort Street during a very long walk in Victoria, Canada.



It’s a long drive but well-worth the visit. Had such a beautiful day at Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, Canada. This is on the lower lake.


Facing Mount Matier at upper Joffre Lake.




So thrilled to be here 🙂



Take a little walk with me at upper Joffre Lake.



More Crocuses at Queen Elizabeth Park.





Frosty scenes from Winter on Mount Seymour, above North Vancouver.





Under stormy Spring skies…
Love my walks at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta, Canada.



Not quite the Easter bunny but this is all I have 🙂
taken in the Sunken Garden at The Butchart Gardens, near Victoria.



Colours of Spring with crocuses at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver.





A very happy bee…



Crocuses in full bloom outside the British Columbia Parliament Buildings in Victoria.





At the edge of the forest (an urban forest) at Beacon Hill Park in Victoria.



Loved this scene with daffodils blooming, the heritage home, and angry skies…
Taken at Clover Point Park in Victoria.



Sailing through the Gulf Islands on BC Ferries to Victoria.


 A moment of reflection…
From my hike to Minnekhada Regional Park in Port Coquitlam, Canada.



Posted on World Water Day, one of Canada’s most important rivers…
From my Autumn visit to Banff National Park, facing Bow Falls on the Bow River.



I had visited this spot in Summer and Autumn but until my Saturday snowshoe, never in the Winter. This is the waterfall between middle and upper Joffre Lakes in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park.



A coupe of scenes from Springtime… Mount Cheam from the former Tulips of the Valley Festival, east of Vancouver.



RoozenGaarde, part of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington State, USA.



Stormy scenes over Vancouver.





One more with me at upper Joffre Lake.


I am so glad for Springtime. Wishing you a most wonderful season of renewal. Take care and thanks for stopping by 🙂
