Pictures from last Saturday morning’s drive in the country… the goal was to take pictures of the St. Nicholas Anglican Church near Craven in the Qu’Appelle Valley and see what else we could find along the way (like the donkeys in my last post!). Off to Montana tomorrow where it’s going to be hot, hot, hot!
These are daisies at Orveas Bay Resort on Vancouver Island near Sooke (about 45 minutes from Victoria). I spent about an hour one morning just wandering around taking pictures of all the daisies on the property. It was one of my favourite memories of that trip (and I highly recommend staying at Orveas Bay if you’re ever visiting that part of Vancouver Island).
Spring will come soon, the snow will melt, puddles will dry up, trees will bud, tulips will emerge from the ground…. But c’mon, more snow? More cold? Soon can’t come soon enough! I need new pictures to post here instead of posting from deep within my photo library! Bleak grey skies and dirty snow don’t inspire me to get my camera out.
So, instead here’s a picture of a daisy, my favourite flower.
It’s been a really nice summer here this year – lots of sunshine and heat (although I’m not sure I like the really hot days as much as I used to). The forecast is for a warm September so I hopefully I can make my flowers last a little longer, although the heat and wind have taken their toll. These are a few pictures I’ve taken in various places in Regina this summer.
Just a quick post while on my lunch break. Daisies are my all-time favourite flowers.
I’m pretty certain I’ve never quoted Drew Barrymore before, but she likes daisies too and said, “daisies are like sunshine to the ground.”
Now I’m off to spend the rest of my lunch break outside. Hope it’s equally as nice outside wherever you are reading this from!
