Angel’s Trumpet

When I pick out my flowers in the spring, I like to choose a few I’ve never planted before or ones I don’t plant every year…this year’s pick was Angel’s Trumpet.  It’s very easy to grow, but when I looked up more information on it after I bought it, I discovered it’s actually highly toxic and not recommended if pets and children can come into contact with it.  It’s very pretty, though!

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).
