March Iris-Spring In Vancouver

Is this a sign of an early spring in Vancouver? I sure hope so.

I planted a bunch of Iris bulbs in October 2008. That was the first time in my life that I planted flower bulbs, and the funny thing is that I was thinking about them a couple of days ago.

This is the first time that I recall seeing an Iris starting to bloom this early in Vancouver. I usually start looking for them in May. I'm not complaining though, this means that there are about 20 more to blossom in the front garden. What a treat.

This was my first attempt at using a new Nikon D70 Digital SLR with a telephoto lens. I was in a panic to get some photographs this afternoon, because there is snow predicted to fall overnight, and I was worried that it would damage or harm the 3 Irises that have bloomed.


  1. Gorgeous!! We are 6 weeks away from that here - at least!
    I use a D80 with a wide angle for landscape shots... I just love it...

  2. Thanks Michelle.
    I am truly blessed in that the camera was given to me by my brother, as he finds it is too bulky to carry with him while he is skiing.

    I have not used a SLR camera since mine was stolen in 1988, and having a digital SLR has been wonderful.
