|Choke Cherry Flowers|
|Horse Chestnut Flowers|
We were walking by the river today, which is in full Spring flood, and saw these, the Dogwood and the Choke Cherry; then in the Park, just had to photograph the Horse Chestnut and this yellow leaved tree, which I call Honey Locust Acacia, but not sure of the name. Just about all the trees are now in full leaf, and the grass is summer-long. Our Oregon Grape is turning its yellow flowers into berries, so is no longer yellow.
Whilst by the river, we saw a pair of Orioles chasing each other, a goldfinch feeding, and heard a catbird singing; and met some tourists from Spain fully kitted out with bird-watching equipment, on their way to seeing all the birds in the whole of British Columbia. Hanne was able to speak to them in Spanish.....back at home, our rose bush is covered in new pink blooms.
