I'm writing from beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia tonight. I just finished all my teaching on the west coast and am now catching up on my blog posts. So much to blog about. I'm picking up where I left off, Canada Day weekend in Vancouver. This blog post won't require much text as it shares images of gardens and other beautiful botanical sights I witnessed in Vancouver.
The first group of photos were taken at the University of British Columbia's rose garden. I arrived late day just when the light was magical.
And it is apparently hosta blossom season here!
Driving back to my hotel I passed this flowering tree. I thought it was a horse chestnut, but I've been corrected and informed that it is actually a catalpa tree. Aren't the white blossoms and green leaves gorgeous against the blueness of the sky?
The line of trees formed a huge canopy above me
The next day I paid a visit to the Van Dusen Botanical Gardens. I spent the earlier part of the day at the Museum of Anthropology, but that is a subject I'm saving for my next blog post. Once again I arrived during magic hour!
