Almost Spring...


The search for cherry blossoms has begun... The trees (not cherry) still look pretty bare, down by Kits Beach...



It must be warming up, though. Look, there's people on the beach!



And they're even playing volleyball. Without shirts...



Oh well, let's go check down by the Planetarium.



Hmm. Other than some ducks, there's not much to see.



"Hey, go find your own patch of leafy forest floor! These are MY ants!" A Northern Flicker, a woodpecker that likes ants.



Ok, here's the best location for the big blossom display! Well, if you look closely, you can see them coming!



Ok, Ok. I'll just zoom in a bit, then... "Camera: Enhance!" ...ok, is that better?



And you'll never guess what I found, and in bloom!



"Mom, he's putting up rhododendron pictures again! ...should I tell him to stop?"



Ok, back to the on-going cherry blossom search...



Well, that was better! Where did you find all these? Oh. ...only four blocks from home?
