In Penticton, spring is a-flutter and a-bloom. The ducks are happily pairing off, the Canada geese couples are arriving and the spring bulbs are blooming.
Daffodils, otherwise known as narcissi, are such an enticing spring yellow.
A goose couple eyes us suspiciously from the water. They can be very aggressive and loud, but if one is cautious and slow, they won’t shout at you too badly.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to enjoy more of Penticton’s spring until I return five weeks from now.

Now pretty much snow free here. I expect our fist flower will also be yellow, the ubiquitous dandelion. Lots of geese here nesting in weird places and waiting for the ice to come off the ponds. Happy Friday Lynette. Allan
I haven’t seen any dandelions at all, now that I think about it. I remember them as the first Alberta flower when I lived in Medicine Hat. The little mini- daffodils were up in the city parks beds. Little clumps of them everywhere. We don’t have a lot of geese yet but they’re arriving every day.
Looks like gorgeous weather. It’s been warm here this week, but I’m only seeing very little blooming as of yet.
The last few days have been stunning, Lori. It just feels very spring-like; so great. Your blooms are coming soon!
It won’t be long before you’re back again.
No, it won’t; end of May. Yay!
Wonderful signs of spring rebirth!
Yes, Cindy. So great to see, especially when you’ve been through a subarctic winter!
I adore the yellowness of daffodils. They epitomize spring for me.
They embody such a spring colour, rich and deep and beautiful. So bright.
Lynette, thanks for the daffodils…my favorite flowers and these are just gorgeous! ❤
You are very welcome. 🙂 They are such a lovely sight, especially if the spring is doing a sporadic power struggle with winter. Cheers. 🙂
The spring is such a wonderful time of the year when everything is bursting with life and colour. I planted some daffodils in our garden last fall and they are just starting to bloom. It’s too bad that you have to leave Penticton, but at least you’ll be back soon!
Wonderful that your daffodils are coming up! They are so emblematic of spring with their bright yellow. Yes, I will be back soon to enjoy some full-swing spring!
Those are two lovely visions to keep you happy until your return, Lynette. Happy Spring!
Yes, that’s very true. Thank you very much, Steve. I’ll be back in a little over a month.
