A celebration to uplift us all of spring in our neighbourhood…
…and a look back six years, together with a little Gilbert and Sullivan:
Blossoms around the world May 21, 2014
Blossoms giving colour to our lives the world over.
No, my wanderlust has not taken me to the tulip fields of Holland but to the Tulips of the Valley Festival here in Chilliwack, British Columbia, an hour’s drive from Vancouver. My last visit to the festival was in 2015 and which I shared with you in my post Petal Power. With the Festival’s new location this year our visit on Tuesday was perfect for this week’s Photo Challenge as no borders needed to be crossed to visit this little piece of heaven on earth filled with its seven million blooms. Enjoy the slide show and have your spirits raised with this seasonly perfect Gilbert and Sullivan classic from the Mikado performed by the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company.
Definitely a Good Friday with this surprise this morning outside our kitchen window.
After days of rain and more rain, the sun returned this morning to illuminate these early blooming magnificent magnolias on our street, perfect for this week’s Photo Challenge: Dense.
“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
