Vancouver is awash in freeze-framed explosions of bubble-gum-pink-awesomeness. Magnolias, cherry and plum blossoms are on practically every block in the city. Their dazzling, blushing petals clear my mind of the gloomy grey days that plague our city over the winter months. Getting eyefuls of blossoms evoke in me a sweetness tinged with sadness, knowing this eye candy is fleeting and will soon flutter away.
Making a Blossom Berry Smoothie is my way of rejoicing and recapturing the joy of springtime!
