We said our goodbyes to our kids in Edmonton, left the snow and cold temperatures, boarded the plane and arrived back in Kelowna last night to find it had warmed up a bit!
This morning we enjoyed our walk under blue skies and the smell of spring in the air … I am so happy it has finally arrived. During our time away the water in Lambley Creek has risen and it is flowing into Okanagan Lake at a pretty good clip.
While we were away one of our grandson’s let me know that the dandelions had finally made an appearance and we saw lots of them today. It’s funny how they are so much prettier when they are not in your yard 🙂
Before we left, the campsites were surround by bare trees, now they are looking much prettier.
The entire campground is starting to look much greener and more inviting.
The Oregon Grape has started to bloom and soon the bushes will be covered in yellow flowers.
I also saw some Okanagan Sunflowers blooming up on the hill but I had my flip-flops on and couldn’t climb up the hill for a close-up.
The Okanagan Sunflower is actually an Arrowleaf Balsamroot, which is Kelowna’s official floral emblem … locals refer to the plant as the Okanagan Sunflower.
It won’t be long before you can no longer see Maxx from the road 🙂
Until next time …
