More is Better

Of course I couldn't just take one photo....

I took many.... 

...Such an incredibly beautiful sight...

...and I never tire of it.

A Majestic View

Every time we make the road trip to Alberta
we have the wonderful opportunity
to view majestic Mt Robson,
the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies,
and the second highest mountain in all of BC.
The white clouds allowed us
a glimpse of the beautiful mountain
 before it enveloped the peak and hid
the mountain from our view.

Rising River

Warm weather in May
 and the Vedder River is rising...

The warm temperatures are melting the snow upriver...
and slowly the gravel bars are disappearing...

Crossing the train bridge
you can sense the power
 of the rushing water below...

...a lovely, blue green river,
always restless and moving.
Thanks for visiting today!

My Garden - In the Shade

My shade garden ... on the north side of the house.  
It's subtle beauty,
with plants like the native Bleeding Heart,
Hostas, Saxifraga....

and the delicate"forget me not" like flowers
of Brunnera,
enables me to smile
every time I walk by.
Thank you for visiting!

Spring On the Slopes

Spring is slowly creeping up the mountainside...

.... the vibrant green leaves...

... appearing higher and higher
on the slopes ... is so wonderful
to be able to take a moment
to enjoy
Thank you for visiting my blog!

My garden - Lilacs and More

After a particularly hot day today(28+ C)...

...the lilacs are rapidly opening their blooms,
..and their wonderful scent wafts through the air... well as other delightful surprises
 in my garden.

We were able to enjoy
 a couple of delightful summer days
before the return of spring and cooler temperatures tomorrow.
