Pulled from the archives…these photos were taken while on a trip to Victoria, British Columbia with my mom and her husband on December 3, exactly 5 years ago today(this was actually a coincidence but I will pretend otherwise!). Notice that there is NO snow…which is why I want to live there instead of here in Winnipeg.
A beautiful tree just outside the famous Empress Hotel. It is an Arbutus tree- Canada’s only native broad-leafed evergreen tree. In the fall the reddish bark peels off revealing smooth, new green bark underneath.
A very cool tree!!
