Spring flowers slide show

It’s not an “event” adumbrated by the human calendar, but this is too nice to resist posting: The Times-Colonist (Victoria newspaper) has created an audio-slide show, Spring flower photos from our readers, which everyone who’s sick of winter should just click through to now. As the title indicates, the photos are all reader-submitted; the background guitar music is by Dave Clarke.

Even though the flowers prove that Victoria still has the best climate in Canada, it’s also true that we’re dealing with unseasonally cold, dark weather this year. Climate change on the coast is not exactly “warming,” just “change.” Good thing the flowers haven’t stopped pushing through.
