Waiting for Spring, February Photos

April 6, 2017 — Leave a comment

Snow and rain with the odd temptation of Springtime pretty much summarized February in Vancouver. Early Rhododendrons that sometimes started blooming in late January and the early Cherry Blossoms barley showed any buds. I didn’t want to emerge either as the snow fell right into March. Thankfully, I was able to get out a few times but it was good I had unpublished photos from the previous Spring and other seasons. These are my photos published to social media in February.


This was a lovely February day… Sunset at the pier in White Rock, Canada.


A frosted tree at Green Timbers Park in Surrey, Canada.


Hundreds of Bald eagles congregating in one area of Delta, Canada near Boundary Bay was a highlight for many people who visited in February.





On a February morning, I wrote…
It won’t be long for this… I love these Magnolias from the previous Spring along a street in Vancouver, Canada. Turns out, we would be waiting longer than expected.



What do you see?
A cumulus creature over Vancouver.



Blooming in February…
this beautiful purple Christmas cactus, a special gift from my late aunt.



A snowy scene…
on the way to Elfin Lakes in Garibaldi Provincial Park, Canada.



From Summer, Monarch butterfly and Liatris in the gardens of Krause Berry Farms in Langley, Canada.


After a dusting of snow the previous night, a Spring-like afternoon at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta.



I never had this happen before…
two Red-winged Blackbirds feeding from my hand at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary.



Not my snowman but I liked this Winter scene at Green Timbers Park in Surrey.



Lovely purple Anemones at Stanley Park in Vancouver.



Facing Mount Baker in Washington State from the pier at White Rock.



Posted on a snowy day in Vancouver, a look forward to Springtime and this beautiful Cherry Blossom tunnel in East Vancouver.



A sure sign of Spring…
So happy to see the crocuses starting to bloom at VanDusen Botanical Garden on a late February afternoon.





I love this scene from a previous Spring…
famous Cherry Blossom trees at VanDusen Botanical Garden.



Posted on a snowy morning… I’m tired of talking about the snow so I’ll look back to late Summer and the dahlia Rust Bucket at Ferncliff Gardens, Mission, Canada.





and the dahlia Just Peachy at Ferncliff Gardens.


Sunset from the pier in White Rock.

Sunset over Vancouver from one of my favourite spots along Boundary Road in North Burnaby.



Rhododendrons and azaleas from last Spring at VanDusen Botanical Garden.



Weather update from Burnaby on Super Bowl Sunday…
Snowing A LOT.



Just when I thought Winter was over, we woke up to more than a dusting of snow in Surrey.



Another dusting of snow (we had many).



Thrilled to be able to hike so close to Alexander Falls in the Callaghan Valley near Whistler, Canada.



It was a little chilly.


I said it last month, I had enough with snow and ice. And it wasn’t over yet! I hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for your time 🙂
