Spring is bursting out in little ways all around VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Photo taken on 25 March 2012. These little crocuses were found pushing their way up around the Laburnum trees that form the Laburnum Walk in VanDusen Garden.

Camera: Nikon D7000 – Lens: Nikkor 70-300mm

I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. In the past, photography was something I did casually, using very ordinary cameras, in order to capture family photos, travel memories, etc. With my first DSLR camera, a new world of creativity opened for me. I now see the world in a whole new way through the lens of my camera. I invite you to journey with me through my collection of photos and enjoy! It is my hope that you will find in my collection of work, some art that you will purchase.

    Aren’t they delightful when they poke their heads up in spring? Beautiful!

  • Hi Dot: Thanks for your comment. My favorite garden is way behind in spring flowers. We have had so much cold weather here. Have to go back in a few weeks and see how my favorite garden grows then! Cheers…

    Lovely Carol! I’m so glad you were able to get out to VanDusen for some shooting! The crocuses are just lovely!

    BTW, thanks for suggesting me as a featured artist in Beautiful BC… you’re so sweet!

  • Thanks so much Tracy! I hope to get out to VanDusen again soon. Not much was blooming yet because of our late spring. Have a great day!! Cheers…
