Canada in Bloom

 

After a cold and snowy winter, these tulips are the sight Canadians anticipate. When so many are massed together like this, the vibrant color provides a stunning display.

In early summer, the streets of Toronto seem to burst into bloom. Each window has a hanging basket of flowers, even in the poorest sections.

 

Outdoor stalls have plenty of variety from which to choose.

 

By mid-summer, the sunflowers take over.

 

In Hawai`I, we take this kind of beauty for granted. After enduring the harsh winter, these become precious jewels to our Northern neighbors. Is it any wonder that Canadians take such pride in showing off their flowers?

A hui hou!
