I guess it takes one living in a tropical climate to appreciate you. Vancouver, to be precise. Where you visit almost on a daily basis for about nine months out of the year.
And while you bring on umbrellas and wellies, and rainproof apparel, you also bring clean air and dark green living vegetation everywhere. And when in May you finally stop to show up on a daily basis, you bring beautifully coloured flowers that smell amazing.
I learnt how to love you, eventually.
