April Showers Bring May Flowers

Old Forsythia Bush

Cherry Blossoms

Driveway Decoration
It was showery when we walked on Old Kaleden Rd., and we discovered that the cherry trees were now in bloom.( A week earlier in Oliver, and a bit earlier again in Osoyoos, as one moves further South.) But there was enough sunshine at intervals for warmth and cheering up. April showers also help April flowers! There were quite a few yellow Balsam Root in bloom already, and we saw about eight Mountain/Western Bluebirds flitting about the cherry trees...
PS Funny coincidence that I should blog about the Trans-Canada Highway being closed yesterday, when today I find that the M1 is to be closed for about a week in UK !!

I love the cherry blossoms and the driveway decoration pictures! Really beautiful.

The M1 was damaged by a fire under the raised section near Scratchwood. The stanchions need to be repaired before the motorway can be opened; bad timing with the two FA cup semi finals and the London Marathon all happening this weekend.

Das sind schöne Bilder, alle drei.
Das Rad gefällt mir besonders.
Meine Fotos sind klein, ich weiss. Aber ich möchte mich schützen vor Raubkopien.
Liebe Grüsse

How did you know about the M1? I am amazed, this can't be of interest on the other side of the world?

I wish we could have some April rain too, it's been dry for ages and my garden needs water.
