Fall Hits the City
Fall is my favorite season, and fall in Vancouver does not disappoint. Bright and vibrant autumn colors drape the city as select trees shed their leaves.
What's amazing, and uncommon in Prairie fall seasons, is that the grass remains green and several trees, shrubs and plants don't actually disappear. In fact, some flourish and continue to bloom, something that is unheard of in the Prairies. This make my everyday walk about the city a new adventure as I encounter new flourishing "winter"plants come alive.
What winters obviously lack in Vancouver is snow. It is rare, but snow does happen here....2-5 days out of the year! Want more? Check out my other post dedicated to my thoughts on snow.
