  1. Loved it all Cindy. I’ve been to QE Gardens in Vancouver but not at this time of year, thanks for taking me there today too! I really loved the unique double daffodil with the salmon coloured centre. Can you imagine planting that many tulips? WOW

  2. As always, Cindy beautiful photos.
    I am an admirer of Thich Nhat Hanh.
    After reading the caption from Kozu Kokaura I will have to visit Google.
    Flowers in joy or sadness any occasion.
