Above is a photo of a rhododendron shrub near the tennis courts in Stanley Park. The blossoms looked fresher a few weeks ago but they're still nice to see.
Here is a smaller rhododendron shrub nearby. It's smaller but the flowers are in better condition. What do you think?
And here is a close-up shot of some of the lovely pink blossoms. For those still in the deep throws of winter you have something to look forward to. And for those locally or in warmer climates, you have even more to experience. Have a great spring when it arrives!
The Great Blue Herons are back courting and making their nests. There are several trees near the tennis courts that are filled with nests. The ones pictured are just some of them. Sunday was warm, overcast but not raining. These photos would look much brighter with sun and blue skies but this is a start.
