Vision of Spring by George Cousins

It’s only February but I’m sure many of us are looking forward to a festival of flowers like these. Taken in the Butchart Gardens, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, which has been displaying blooms like this since 1904. A National Historic Site of Canada.

  • Hi Irene, glad you liked it, we have quite a few bulbs and flowering trees starting to come alive again, though still chilly. Another couple of weeks will make a big difference.

    What a gorgeous image. Sitting here in Montreal looking out at the snow and the wind, I could really do with a place like this right now. (Smile>

  • Hi again, I can relate to that. Used to live in both Ottawa and Montreal at one time, and I used to feel the same!

    Oh you tease, George! I look out of the window and see feet of snow!

  • Oh David, when it’s hot in July you’re going to think back on those nice cool snowy days with sledding and snowballs and all that.
    NO?? Not really??
    Good to hear from!

    Congratulations on your feature George,,,,,,,,wonderful fresh flowers is all I wish for at this time of year!

  • Hi Vickie, we’re starting to see them now..lots of snowdrops and crocus, the daffs won’t be far behind. It needs a few days of sunshine which has been in very short supply..pouring rain again this morning!
