Vancouver will be hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics in less than a month, and right now it's more like spring than winter. Last week as I was walking up from the beach, I saw a beautiful peach-colored rosebud, happily blooming next to a garden wall. Many of the shrubs are filled with blooms ready to burst open, and the furniture birds are happily singing their little heads off in the trees. Even the raccoons are starting to lurk about in the trees, waiting for the crows to lay their eggs. What's going on? Folks from around the world who are expecting to come to Canada to find the land of ice and snow, are more likely to see new, fresh growth on the palm trees. Yes, we have palm trees in Vancouver -- lots of them.
Please ... pray for snow...!
