Early April buds and flowers in Maree's and Janice's front gardens in Vancouver

Before the promised rains returned, I spent some time shooting in Janice's and Maree's front gardens (both lawns have disappeared).  The light but persistent breezes repeatedly forced me to wait for minutes, but the youthfulness of the buds is amazing.
