Spring in Vancouver
Ce matin dans notre quartier … this morning in our neighbourhood.
Les jardins Momiji et les jardins Italiens. Les deux sont sur le terrain d’exposition PNE. Momiji Gardens and Italian Gardens. Both are on the PNE grounds.
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.
This beautiful garden, created in Vancouver in the mid-1980s, is the first of its kind made outside of China. The snake sculpture in the water was constructed of willow branches and was made to celebrate the Year of the Snake. I visited the garden in mid-April as the spring flowers were emerging. I’m looking forward to returning on a warmer day when I can see more of the carp swimming in the ponds. To learn more about the garden or find out times to visit, see their website.
The UBC Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to visit. Walking through the woods there yesterday, my father and I saw beautiful flowers and mossy stumps and majestic liana-covered trees, and heard birds chirping and the peaceful sound of little brooks and the crashing waves of the nearby ocean. There will be more flowers out as the weather gets warmer, but right now it’s a delight to see those that have already bloomed (magnolia, rhododendron, trillium, swamp lantern and more) and to enjoy the combination of bright sunshine and cool air.
Monochrome is my first love so that’s what I’m posting today, but I’ll put up some colour photos in a day or two.
