Everyone has a flower that says spring — these are some of your picks
This May we asked Canadians to show us their spring, using the hashtag #HelloSpringCBC and we've been overwhelmed by the beauty of your nature photography.
We've also been thrilled to see such a wide array of flowers that the spring rain has brought to life! No matter where you live, everyone's got a particular bloom that says "spring" to them. Do you have one?

New signs of spring everyday. It’s also a great day for a lunchtime walk... rainy weather = less people dodging on the sidewalks. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/getoutside?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#getoutside</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/hellospringCBC?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#hellospringCBC</a> <a href="https://t.co/zvJEsDEu49">pic.twitter.com/zvJEsDEu49</a>—@Braca_M
