Work crews and crocuses both herald spring

February 21, 2016

A worker ant it ain’t.

All these blooming City of Vancouver Streets Operations crews suddenly tearing up sidewalks and roads in the Fairview neighbourhood may inconvenience me a bit but they sure don’t bug me. In fact, I welcome them.

That’s because the reappearance of burly fluorescent orange-clad city work crews ripping up street corners and pouring fresh cement is just as much a sign of spring in Vancouver as the delicate purple crocuses presently popping up all over the city. Click the images to enlarge them.
