It was such a glorious day yesterday, that we decided to make it a walk day. Our route took us through the neighbourhoods of Fernwood, Jubilee, the edge of Oak Bay and Rockland, where we spent a bit of time in the grounds of Government House.

Later in the spring and throughout the summer, the grounds at Government House will be full of beautiful plants and flowers. Yesterday we were content to see so many narcissus.
