Bow Falls

Bow Falls near the Banff Springs Hotel…

Lake Louise

It seemed like every tourist in the Banff area decided to visit Lake Louise today. It was busy!!! But, also beautiful. Someday, I went to spend the night at the Chateau Lake Louise.

petunias and blue sky

This has been a pretty perfect weekend weather-wise – hello summer!  Went grocery shopping yesterday before supper and everyone looked sun-kissed (or burnt!) and mellow and just content.  We had what seemed like six months of winter (the sad part is that’s not a… Continue Reading “petunias and blue sky”

I used to think petunias were boring.  When I first started planting flowers on my balcony,  I would choose plants at the greenhouse that were more interesting and prettier – gerbera daisies, garden mums, fuchsias and a host of flowers that bloomed once and… Continue Reading “the lowly petunia”

We had our first snowfall yesterday and I’m so not inspired to take pictures of snow yet.

Since spring/summer weather was so late to arrive this year, I’m in denial that today is the first day of fall… so here are some pictures from the Summer Solstice at English Bay in Vancouver.  It was a beautiful evening and it felt like… Continue Reading “denial”
