Windmall palms and Mediterranean heather are but two species in full bloom...in January...in Vancouver
I stepped away from my iMac long enough today to snap a few photos of my front yard where the palms and heather are looking mighty happy right about now. That's probably because Environment Canada reports that January 2010 was a record warm month. In my short walk around New Westminster, I saw snow drops, crocus, witchhazel and dozens of other flowers blooming. They're showing their spring colours just in time to welcome visitors for the winter Olympics!
