Well, it wasn't snowing today - but there was lots of damp grey rain so here is another from the archives - this photo was taken in February 2013 in Beacon Hill Park and as soon as the weather permits I'll be down there to see how the crocuses are doing this year. (Does anyone know what "priming the pump" means any more? In this case, I'm hoping I can hurry spring along by posting a photo of some crocuses.)
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
