I second your wish.

Norman--

Ya!

(and this morning, Sunday, there was a bit of a blossom blizzard in the swirling winds!)

RossK,

That is so sweet of you ... (sniffle) ... thanks!

Those blossoms remind us that winter is really over, as the cherry blossoms (or are those plum?) burst forth with a blaze of colour. So reassuring.

One of my favourite spots is in Victoria where Dallas Road passes Beacon Hill Park, on one side, the hillsides burst out with daffodils and streets are lined with cherry blossoms, and on the other side is the ocean with snow-capped Olympic Mountains beyond.

It's one of the best things the West Coast does.

Thanks, RossK. You too, Norman.

I'm still hanging in the snow-capped mountains to your east, Mary. On a clear day, when you look hard enough, you can just imagine me there in my snow shoes, looking down upon an old BC rail line, waiting for the first flower to poke out. I wait for it so that I may be so bold as to dedicate its existence to you.

RossK said...

You're most welcome Mary.

That place you mentioned.....

It's one of my favourites too.

For all kinds of reasons.

Not the least of which is the fact that it is the exact place where C. and I got married.

Sharing--

I think you just did.....

Make that dedication I mean.

BC Mary said...

Sharing,

That's really lovely of you ... I'm smiling.



RossK,

I'm so impressed to know about Beacon Hill Park, the daffodils, cherry blossoms, blue sky and C + C at such a magically important moment in your lives.
