Hello from Vancouver BC

 

P1080967

Well, when we left Edmonton, last Friday, the ground was frozen and we had  fresh snow.  We ended up with a cancelled flight, a frustrating detour through Calgary, and arrived Vancouver seven hours later than expected. Yes, it has been raining off and on but we have the pleasure of seeing flowers everywhere. Magnolia trees in full bloom, cherry blossoms, rhododendron and daffodils in most parks. A city in bloom. A long way from home, literally and figuratively.

We have been here for three days in workshops and ikebana lessons and will be posting more on this subject when we get home in another 3 days. Meanwhile, we are enjoying our visit with family and friends, and, of course, the opportunity we have had to play with flowers. I will have more time for the blog upon our return home so I will leave you with a few pictures of the flowers we are enjoying.
