On a sunny Vancouver morning I set out on a walk with a dear friend around the Stanley Park sea wall. We ducked into the park around Second Beach and decided to take a detour through the gardens around the pitch and putt course. Armed with our pocket cameras, we spent close to an hour strolling through the bark-mulch paths.

We started at the camellia walk (near Ceperley Meadow), headed over to the azalea walk (near Lost Lagoon), then looped around to the magnolia walk (off Lagoon Drive). Along the way there were other photographers and several artists setting up tripods and canvases to capture the scene with watercolour.

The entire area is a part of the Ted & Mary Greig Rhododendron Garden, which is a beautiful punch of colour in the park, filled with floral scents and buzzing honeybees. If you’re not an allergy sufferer, take some time to literally stop to smell the roses (or lilacs in this case).
