When Friday was predicted to be rain free, Leslie suggested that we finally return to The Bloedel Reserve since they told us there would be more flowers shortly. They weren’t wrong. There were early native flowers, like these Red Currants
and fields full of magnificent Skunk Cabbage.
Of course, there were also a lot of non-native flowers blooming, particularly camellias like this is pink beauty.
There was also some of the earliest Rhododendrons I’ve seen, like these beautiful white ones.
Of course, it would be Bloedel Reserve if we didn’t see flowers we’ve never seen before like this exotic specimen.
There weren’t a lot of birds, but most of them seem accustomed to seeing people and were more than willing to have their photo taken.
As temperatures approached the 60’s it was impossible to deny that there was a lot more Spring in my step than there has been for nearly a month.
