There Be Whales!!

This is taken from a beach near my place. When I saw them on my drive home, I drove down there as fast as I could and got to have a good look!

Blooming Garden


Through the arbour to the lilac and rhodo bushes.


Two rhodo bushes in full bloom. It's gorgeous to see.



The only blossom on my laburnum. It's third year there.


Same two rhodos from a different angle. They really fill the front yard.

What's Happening in the Garden on October 5th?


Hard to photograph but the Raspberries are still coming!


There are still Zucchini coming too!


This is a pot sitting on my patio.


Loads of blooms!


One last Hollyhock bloom.


This is a dinner plate size Dahlia.


I'm amazed at everything that's still hanging in there. Oh how I love living on the Sunshine Coast of Beautiful British Columbia!

Beautiful British Columbia

This photo was taken from the Earl's Cove/Saltery Bay ferry. It's even beautiful on a cloudy day.



Also taken from the same ferry on Friday, September 10th.



Spectacular sunset photo take from my studio, looking west toward Vancouver Island. Land in the foreground on the left is Texada Island.



Same location as above; different day. Love where I live!

More Blooms in the Garden

Dark Red Hollyhocks
This plant is a "volunteer" in my garden.
I'm not sure where the seeds came from. Maybe a bird?




Gorgeous Daisies
This is one of several kinds of Daisies (all beautiful) in my garden.




Dahlias from Colleen in bloom.
There is a purple leafed dahlia not showing in this photo.




This is one of eight new raspberry plants.
Beautiful berries for year one!




I was just about to snap this pic when the bumblebee appeared.
Lucky me!




I think this is some type of "mallow".
It's blooming beautifully and in it's second year in my Garden.

Boat to Savory

Had a beautiful day today! Boat trip to Savory Island, a bit of a walk about, lunch and then the afternoon on the beach. Fabulous weather, fabulous company!

Here's the boat we motored (no wind to speak of) over on.
(Click on the image to see it full screen. It's really a beautiful boat.)


Some vistas from the island...

Looking south east to Powell River.



South-west(ish) to Vancouver Island.


South to Harwood Island.



That haze you are seeing in all of the photos is smoke. British Columbia is on fire.
