South of the Fraser

Surrey, Delta, White Rock and Langleys

Cherry tree at King George Skytrain Station

King George Station's lone cherry tree makes a brave effort

 

It's not quite the same effect as the rows of cherry trees at Burrard Street Station, but King George Station has its own pink-blossomed tree.

When I took this shot the flowers were just a bit past their peak. Hints of bright green were starting to poke their way out the stems, creating a lovely combination of pink and green against the dark wet bark.

Every day the green bits grow a bit bigger. Soon all the bird nests will become invisible. This one is just around the corner from the Skytrain station:

Possibly a thrush's nest, soon to be hidden by leaves

Introduction

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
