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.
