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.
