Nanaimo's city plantings are heavy on bulbs. After the snowdrops, the next domesticated flower to show in quantity is crocus: they're planted in masses in various boxes and beds in public places, such as this memorial park dedicated to early immigrant Chinese labourers (who were, as was the custom at the time, cheated and worked to death in Nanaimo's coal mines). Interestingly (from a personal POV) my partner Jon helped to build the stone walls in this park over 30 years ago, as a young man desperate for work, but that's a whole 'nother story.
