Every year around this time, I notice two things about Vancouver’s landscape.  First, the fresh new growth — what a friend called “virgin green.”  Also known as spring.

And how the city’s urban forest appears so much more lush than I remember, filling in the streets from top to sides with all that virginity.

Question: Is it really more lush than last year?  Answer: Why, yes it is.
Stuff grows fast here, especially the deciduous trees – and the rhododendrons that aspire to outgrow them.
