Colours and textures

Colourful lilac flowers put in a spring appearance on Vancouver Island...

In my post earlier this week, I mentioned the transitory nature of some art. In a similar fashion, the arrival of spring and warm weather on Vancouver Island is marked by the temporary appearance of cherry and apple blossoms and - in the case of our garden - the pink/purple hues of our lilac bushes.

Within a few weeks their colourful flowers and pleasant scent will be gone for another year.

The feathery stems of our sawgrass stay around all year but, in spring, once they have dried out from the winter rain, they have an almost ethereal appearance.
