It was a hot long weekend Sunday. Stifling perhaps. From the Okanagan through to the Sunshine Coast it has been a long dry spell of sun and heat, and on this day temperatures in MetroVancouver would again approach 30 degrees.
On this Sunday morning we enjoyed a coffee at VanDusen Garden, as is often our custom on a Sunday morning. We then walked through the garden seeking out the coolness of shade wherever we found it.
The colours were bright and bold in the sunshine, almost too brilliant to be taken as real.
Some of us found shade along the paths, others donned straw hats and discovered the coolness of the lawn.
Still another lone soul gave in to the heat, threw a blanket on a park bench and went to sleep.
Or so it seemed.
The Man on a Couch is actually a 45 cm sculpture by Jesse Rubin and was one of many featured at the 7th Annual Show and Sale by the Sculptors' Society of BC .
