One of my favourite things about spring in Vancouver is the huge magnolia buds. When I first moved to the West Coast from the Rockies I was so intrigued by them and how exotic they seemed. I saw my first magnolia tree outside the Mayfair Mall in Victoria and immediately called my mum to tell her about these “tropical” trees that I had discovered. I now know that they are magnolias, but every year around this time I still get excited by their big, colourful and furry emergence.
