Most of the photos this week are from my many visits to Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada. Located a short drive from my home, I try to visit the park a few times per month. In the Spring, I’ll visit even more as the gardens come alive with beautiful colours of tulips, daffodils, rhododendrons, magnolias, and cherry blossoms, among other flowers. I’m very lucky to live so close. Now, please join me on my new post with my photos shared to social media in the past week.

 

I’m glad this Canada Goose took a moment to pose for me in front of the daffodils and hyacinths earlier this year in the gardens of Stanley Park.

Not from Stanley Park but some Autumn colour featuring roses and daisies in Delta, British Columbia, Canada (along 116th Street to be more precise!)

Chrysanthemum along with a few pansies too, outside the Stanley Park Pavilion.

Rose in the Sky!
Although it was a little past its prime (similar to me), I still enjoyed this peachy rose against a brilliant blue sky. Late Summer in the rose garden of Stanley Park.

Hello gosling 😄
Not exactly a baby but still kind of cute. Taken earlier this year at Burnaby Lake in Burnaby.
