Hydrant


Vancouver gardens can, and do, burst into colour. Garden-wise that's as much as I know.

If they occasionally burst into flames it's news to me.

Makes you wonder. I've never seen a hydrant out in the middle like that. Do they drive the firetruck on the grass? Heaven forbid!!

Is that a bee I see?

Looks like a nice spot for running.

Greetings from Australia. The red fire hydrant looks marvelous there.

Wow, what a great shot. I just love this one, W! But I'm curious about why, exactly, that hydrant is there.

That makes two of us LA.

The top of Little Mountain (aka Queen Elizabeth Park) is the highest point (501 ft. about sea level) within the city boundaries. Just beyond the trees is a reservoir for city water. That doesn't explain putting an hydrant in a rose garden but I'll bet it's got great water pressure.

The park was named in honour of Queen Elizabeth, the queen mum, not Elizabeth 2, the present queen.
