All around the Pacific Northwest, I'm sure bloggers are taking photos of the first spring snow drops. They are finally in bloom in our neighborhood, which I think is a bit behind the microclimate of Van Dusen Gardens.
The witch hazel tree near us is in bloom too, and lights up gloriously when the sun comes out.
The squirrels go nuts on this hazelnut tree in the fall, so it's lovely to see the spring catkins.
Some of the winterberries are falling off onto this mossy planting which is an alternative to a traditional lawn.
One lonely quince left rotting on a tree.
I don't know what kind of trees these are. I call them art nouveau trees.
Be sure to take a look at the Wednesday walkabout on the UBC Farm Blog. Check out that rhubarb!
