Christmas jewels in the crown of Vancouver (Queen Elizabeth Park): Photos by Ned Jacobs

We thank Ned Jacobs for these photos, taken on Christmas Day. “What a blessing—and a fabulous Christmas present!” he writes. One photo features the highest point in Vancouver — the emergency communications tower, silhouetted at sunrise. Another shows red-budded rhododendrons, a snowberry bush, sword ferns, and in the distance a grove of red cedars, native to the ancient volcanic outcrop known as Little Mountain. A third shows a crow flying over the Dry Quarry Garden below Seasons restaurant. A fourth features a winter-flowering Viburnum (with sweet-smelling blossoms) at the Rose Garden. And a fifth, also in the Rose Garden, highlights the scarlet fruits of floribunda roses against the verdant winter lawn.
