One of my favourite things about summer is the floral bounty found everywhere. Here are some samples for you to enjoy.
The city plants pots and beds overflowing with colour and scent.
Of course many homeowners make their neighbourhoods more beautiful with their plantings.
Even some plants, considered weeds, can be quite pretty.
Too soon, the flowers will disappear and be replaced by the beauty of autumn.

These photos don’t require any explanation. In May, the flowers in British Columbia were already in full bloom.

My previous two posts gave you an idea of what things could be seen inside the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver. This post is to show you the grounds outside. I don’t think much commentary will be needed. Just take in the beauty of this spot.
The fountain waters would rise and fall, sometimes reaching many feet upward, sometimes only inches.
Here, the roof of the conservatory can be seen behind the fountains.
I loved these little maple leaves that were placed around the fountain’s edge. It’s details like this that are fun to discover!
A sculpture called “Knife Edge” is displayed near the fountains.
Speaking of sculptures, this group of three appears to be posing for their picture.
Time to get back on the bus and go to our next stop, Gastown.
