They say patience is a virtue. It may be a virtue, but it is definitely not one of my strong suits. Like many Vancouverites, I am running out of patience waiting for winter to end. In anticipation of the clocks “springing forward” this month and the arrival of Daylight Savings Time, it seemed prudent to venture out to Queen Elizabeth Park and search for spring. Much has been written in the news these past days of an early spring. Naturally, I thought I would investigate for myself and Vancouver’s iconic Queen Elizabeth Park seemed a logical place to start.
