two worlds

So the sunny skies that have graced us here lately are wonderful. A break from the famous Vancouver grey and a chance to wear shoes that aren’t made of plastic is certainly nice. The clouds work like a blanket though, so when they leave, the temperature drops. Yesterday we took a moment to check out the frost in the best possible place to do so – Queen Elizabeth Park. Why is it the best? Because it’s really two worlds in one.

The first, rhubarb melted into a frozen puddle (still amazing looking… this is such a cool plant!) I can’t stop being fascinated by the way the water expands as it freezes. It’s like the plants are all wearing a little wig of crystals.
