Spring Blooms in Vancouver

Oh the beauty you will see in Vancouver this time of year!  My son took these photos while on his lunch break.  Can you imagine free flowing fountains, trees in full bloom and green grass?  Well, some of you can, I'm sure.  But here in Edmonton it's a whole other story. 
My son sent these photos the other day.  Further proof of the benefits of living in his favourite city.  Here in Edmonton, we still have snow.  It has been melting but it is a slow process.  If you can recall the size of our snowbanks, you'll understand.  (See my post We're in Deep, Snow That Is to get an idea of just how much snow we had in January.) Better slow, though, than a fast melt which could lead to flooding. 

 Time to get our eyes wet, as the saying goes over at Watery Wednesday.  Each Wednesday people from across the world link their photos of gorgeous watery oases.  Stop by, won't you?

What's the weather like where you live?  Does it look like the above photos or more like our Edmonton with snow still prevalent.  By the way, we are forecasted to receive more snow overnight tonight with that system leaving us sometime Friday.  Did I mention how we are all yearning for spring?

We are finally experiencing spring here in NJ and every time I'm ready to complain I tell myself there are others still stuck with the white stuff. Soon enough, soon enough it will be gone.

Those little oases in the city, complete with running water, soothe the weary soul!

THE BEST WATER

With water they say that the best
Is clearest when put to the test;
No sediment there
To cause wear and tear—
Pure water sure beats all the rest!
