James Bay - Summer's coming

I have to post this now because the trees are greening up so fast that these cherry tree photos will be out of date soon. I have mentioned Victoria's benign climate and we are chortling complacently today reading about our Canadian neighbours in Calgary who got 25 centimeters of snow yesterday (that's almost 10 inches).

This photo was taken in a part of Victoria known as James Bay. It is the oldest residential neighbourhood of the city and is home to many fine heritage houses.

That's a gorgeous old cherry tree, with beautiful contrast between the dark wood and pink blossoms. And what a storybook house with the picket fence and archway. Roses? Wisteria? Honeysuckle?
