It has been one mighty long winter here in Metro Vancouver. At first the snow was trivial, some may even say it was fun. But then it stuck around for a few days (something we are NOT accustomed to), and it snowed again, and again, and again! The weather was practically all anyone could talk about, and despite the absolute bliss our inner-child was feeling, we were collectively over it when flurries fell for one last time in March. It’s been a long haul, but now that the temperatures are FINALLY starting to rise and the frost is fading, it’s time to embrace spring!
Although delayed by West Coast standards, we are starting to see some signs of spring surfacing, and we are very ready for sunny skies and the smell of flowers in the air. Here are some of our first glimpses of spring captured by our very talented #TrueSurrey community.
