Another from Butchart Gardens in Victoria, B.C., Canada. This truly is a wonderful place in the springtime – especially for Albertans. One person we spoke to said: “Oh, we’ve been mowing our lawns for three months already.” To which I replied:
Since I’ve managed to re-stock my little larder of snaps I thought I’d start sharing them with you.
As one part of the trip we took a pilgrimage to horticultural Mecca – Butchart Gardens – on Vancouver Island. What a stunningly beautiful place – and this from someone who is not really a flower person.
Ask me, for example, if these are hydrangeas, azaleas or chrysanthemums and I could not more than guess if my very life depended on it. Ask me, however, if they are beautiful – ask me if the petals are soft, smooth, perfect examples of form and function in nature, and I can assure you I am an accredited expert.
Over the next while I will be posting some of the photos from this recent trip.
I hope you enjoy.
I was in Victoria last week, in British Columbia, Canada. Oddly enough, I was looking at a big ship when I noticed this beautiful bald eagle. He was arguing with some crows at the time, perched high up on a light pole.
At one point he flew from one pole to another, and that’s when I managed to capture this.
In Alberta we are well-stocked with crows, but not with these astonishing birds. This is definitely a case of being in the right place at the right time.
