Well, it's raining. There's rain, rain and more rain in the forecast. It's pouring rain right now and it was raining the day before as well. I had a look at the long range forecast for the next few days. The sun may peak out later in the week but rain is in the forecast for every day including those days that might see some sun. On the bright side spring flowers are coming in bloom, like crocuses, snowdrops and there is plenty of spring heather in bloom as well. On some shrubs the buds have opened up and the first leaves have begun to form. A couple of weeks ago I even saw a large rhododendron shrub in bloom with red blossoms. It's located near the tennis courts in Stanley Park (Vancouver). The trees above are full of heron nests. That is the area that the Great Blue Heron nests each year. I am looking forward to getting some decent photos of the nests and the heron activity. We will soon be coming into their mating and nesting period. Something to look forward to. Expect some photos soon (well, as soon as the rain lets up a bit!). Have a great weekend!!!
