Aug 9, 2019 - Back to Flowers

Here at Dora's Page, we have a focus on gardening and floral exuberance, and we've been distracted by it with travel and the Barretts' visit. Next thing you know, I was ranting about pipelines. Let's get back to our home base of enjoying Vancouver's flowers:

Above, the rhododendrons have come out at the corner of our building -in two colours, no less, purple and blue. These things astonish me every year. One minute it's plain, green bush of leaves, and suddenly these flowers the size of a baby's head explode out of it.

Then there's the community garden, it's time for a check in with them. They're having a great year, with those three people who all have major, major projects going in their little 2-metre chunk of space. You can hardly breathe nearby for the many scents.
