Springtime on the Island

Well, you wouldn't have known it by the hail that fell this morning but this afternoon is turning out to be quite a nice springy day here on Granville Island.  This morning however was a different was a bit dreary and cold and what started out as rain, turned into slightly snowy rain and eventually to hail!  So the fact that this afternoon has turned out to be a cheerful, spring day is a wonderful surprise.  Have a look!

This was taken under the bridge, looking toward the Public Market.  You can still see the wet pavement from the morning's rain.  But you can see that the weather has already taken a turn for the better!

This was a hanging basket outside a store window.  Such a pretty shade of fuschia!

The planters in and around the streets add a nice and cheerful touch of colour.

We spied this bunch of flowers thriving under an awning, completely covered in shade.  We're not sure what flower this is.....if you do, leave a comment and let us know!

Happy Spring everyone -- let's hope it has finally arrived!
