Signs of Spring in Victoria


I have been living in Victoria long enough now to recognise the distinctive signs of spring.
The resident geese arrived back after their winter in the south, somewhere.

The hungry deer snacked on plants that over the winter they forgot they didn't like.

I barely got the irises in the ground before they were sprouting.

The bulby things a friend gave me, saying they were peonies, that I think I planted all up side down last winter, all came up anyway.

Mid March Ron and I had a stroll around Butchart Gardens to see what it looked like in the very early spring. All of the spring plantings were in but we were too early for any spring flowers.
