hat a difference a week makes. Despite a cool spring, the prettiest street in Chilliwack is showing it's seasonal colours now. Early spring flowers like Grape Hyacinth and Glory of the snow are also in bloom.

 

Early spring flowers like Grape Hyacinth and Glory of the Snow are in bloom as shown in the photo below taken at City Hall last Thursday.

 

Glory of the Snow blooms either in late winter or early spring, once the snow melts; it looks nice in rock gardens or sunny places of woodland gardens. Grape Hyacinth bears spikes of bluish blooms looking like a bunch of grapes, hence the plantís common name.
