One thing I loved while we were in Victoria was how it felt like we fast-forward one month into the future. When we left Edmonton in early April we were driving in the middle of a blizzard. Within a couple days we were on the island and everything was lush and green.
It's only been recently that it's started to really green-up here in Edmonton, but I have yet to see blossoms quite like this here.
What screams spring to you? To me it's blossoms and the fact that it's daylight past 9 pm here!
