All weathers in a weekend

For our weekend trip, Okanagan lake was a brilliant blue, with clouds forming and saskatoon bushes blooming along the side of the road.

The hills of the drylands were tinged with a spring blush of sage green, and lilt by sunny clumps of arrowleaf balsamroot.

The warmer drier climate made itself felt as we travelled south, where fruit trees were coming into full bloom in the roadside orchards. 

The dry hills around Osoyoos were covered in sage and the grape vines were about to burst their leaf buds but hadn't done so yet.

The Hope Princeton Road was in an early stage of spring, and Manning Park still had snow on the trees and beside the road, which fortunately was bare and dry.
