My mum loves flowers and since she was here in spring - I planned to take her to QE Park, Van Dusen and Butchart gardens. It was a great time for rhododendruns which were in full bloom. After a nice leisurely walk around Queen Elizabeth Park and taking many many photos with my mum, of my mum and a lot of the flowers, we headed to Seasons in the Park for some lunch. We worked up quite an appetite but decided to share an appetizer of mussels so that we would have space for dessert later. The mussels were very fresh and we soaked up most of the delicious sauce with the bread.
