I'm in Victoria! My sister got a job working in Haida Gwaii, on the northern most island there, almost in Alaska. Which meant if I didn't see her this week, I wouldn't see her until Christmas. I got my butt on a plane, and now I'm spending a lovely and very sudden week on the west coast, where spring is in full force.
My parents are selling their house, so I have been photographing all the lovely plants I will miss (and the compost!). I've got so many more photos to come - I love this place in spring, so lush and beautiful.
