Last night I went to the first hockey game I’ve ever seen. Even though I’ve lived in Canada since 1969 and have been a citizen since 2002, I have somehow managed to miss this quintessential Canadian experience until now! Let’s just say that I have no clue what was happening, but found it visually very interesting – I loved the movement and the contrast of colours and shapes against the background of white ice. Thank you to the lovely Teresa (of One Wet Foot) and her family for inviting us to go!
One East Van public garden I like to visit is the Italian Garden / Il Giardino Italiano on the PNE grounds, just off Renfrew Street. These photos are from last week, but later in the spring there will be water running in the fountains and more plants in bloom.
I love how round this little bird is!
It brought to mind one of my favourite songs, Pete Seeger’s version of the bluegrass tune “Little Birdie.”
