I've been lucky to have nice days on my banking day at work lately, so I've been taking my lunch break at the same time so I have time to walk in the park. There is a really nice city park near the bank in downtown Vancouver, Esther Short Park. I acturally think there is some history to the park, it was a very early park this side of the rockies. Or something like that. It's got some really huge old trees and a beautiful rose garden, among the usual park stuff. I was overwhelmed by the roses this week, they were so unreal and sculptured looking. Couldn't resist taking some pictures, although all I had was my cell phone I don't think they turned out to bad. I put them together into a collage.
