Winter in John Hendry Park, Vancouver

January 2, 2016

Hello there! Long time no write…. well, I have moved half way round the world to Vancouver, it’s taken a while to settle in (it took over 3 months for our shipping to arrive!) But we are finally settled, moved into our new home and are starting to get to know the city and make new friends.

Vancouver is beautiful, the mountains, the sea, and the lovely houses!


No, this is not my new home, but one of the beautiful houses down the road, every house is different, styles, colours and sizes, it’s such a pleasure to walk down the road.


On the way to the park, I came across some lovely mosaics in the pavement, some swimming fishes….


And a very proud stork!


Walking into the park, I came across this lovely tree, it’s roots splayed out, and  I love how the striped shadows fall across the tree.


The golden colour of these branches look beautiful in the sunlight. This would be a wonderful colour inspiration for a Fair Isle design.


The frost on these leaves looks so pretty.


We then came across this living fence! I love the peep holes that have been made.


More leaves sprinkled with frost.


And I love the ombre of green, to frost green on this branch.


This reminded me of frozen worms!


Walking round we came across a beautiful frosted bench.


I love how the frost has highlighted the grain of the wood so carefully.


The little twig laying across the bench looks so peaceful.


Looking close, it looks like there is a little ‘frost tree’


Walking back out of the park, we walked past this beautiful stone mosaic someone had made, how pretty.

I hope you have enjoyed walking through the park with me, Happy New Year.

    Lovely to see a glimpse of your new home city. I think those reddy orange branches are dogwood, which is glorious in winter. Next time you are in Cambridge, you must visit Anglesey Abbey with Annie, there is the most beautiful Winter garden with a spectacular dogwood display.

    Hi there.
    Your pictures have made me look forward, even more, to our trip later in the year.
