Anniversary

Today, March 10, is Victoria Daily Photo's ninth anniversary. I wanted to post a new photo today to mark the occasion and, since it was a sunny day and rather warmer than it has been lately, I took myself up to one of my favorite springtime haunts, Highrock Park in Esquimalt. I was hoping to see some Satinflowers, one of the very earliest of indigenous spring flowers here. I know several places in Highrock Park where they bloom, usually around this time of the year. I have photos of them taken as early as March 5 in previous years but today, I didn't see any, and not even any sprouts or buds. Our spring this year is definitely later than usual. Even without flowers Highrock Park is a delight. The bit of pathway pictured above is how I usually enter the park.

Congratulations on the 9th Anniversary of VDP, Benjamin!
Your photos of Highrock Park are the reason I visited it for the first time last year. It's one of Victoria's hidden gems, with great views of the city.

Such a mossy mysterious pathway at your feet. We've had an unusual amount of snow on the Mainland this year so warmer weather is sure to put a spring in our steps!
