I’ve been enjoying early-morning walks with a friend. One of our favourite destinations is Government House, the home of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. The gardens and grounds are amazing. This particular morning, we made our way into the neighbourhood of Rockland past Craigdarroch Castle, a local attraction.

Early spring daffodils and grape hyacinths grow in amongst the rocks.
