I have a few obsessions I have shared with you…including the one for tulips. I love the spring here in Vancouver; there aren’t many bugs (wasps in August and September keep me inside), and the landscape is still green. Most of all, I love April and May for the flowers. Rhododendrons, Magnolias, Cherry Blossoms and early trailing Roses are Spring’s great show here, and I love it. In Victoria, it was the Sedums at Mt. Doug, Arbutus and Garry Oaks.
It’s just starting to rain cherry blossoms here, and I love driving down the side streets of Shaughnessy, letting them rain on me, leaving a fishtail of pink behind my car.
Here is some tulip love around my house…
Front door (bulbs from Amsterdam last fall)
Backyard deck…also from Amsterdam last year
Ok, not tulips, but these delicate little roses look so lovely in this urn on the back deck.
