All the Bling Bling of the Season


I’ve been taking down my Christmas lights this week. While I like to make the house sparkle through Christmas, there’s something quite wonderful about this late winter clean up. Subtle changes are evident in the garden as I strip away the layers of lights. The slight change in the soil, the emergence of some of the early season growers breaking soil. ¬†Whispered promises of what’s to come.

It’s been a multi day process.

I can only imagine how long it takes them to take down all those lights at VanDusen Gardens. With over 1 million lights to detangle. Phewph, they best be serving up the hot chocolate for those dedicated volunteers.
