|I could live in surroundings like these, so beautiful.|
A visit to Christ Church Cathedral. This stained glass is of The New Jerusalem! Magnificent! On Christmas Eve... Blessings to all! Merry Christmas!

|I made this little pin cushion to keep track of my needles,|
while my daughter and I have been making Christmas ornaments.
|A sure sign that Ozzy and Henry have accepted Max - |
they are eating together and even let Max finish off their serving!

|We camped on Saltspring Island this summer. It is one of the Gulf Islands. What a magical place.|
|This is a garden center/campground that we visited. Really beautiful and rustic.|
How would you like a shower in here, under a giant Douglas Fir?

This climbing rose is just three years old and so happy here. Don't

great big blousy delphiniums...
|and nice purple petunias with potato vine...|
|and an angel keepin tabs on everything.|

My friend let me know it was the beginning of Lent and what would I be willing to give up for forty days? I considered and said ,"Liver." no, but seriously, how about watching the news? I have recently given that up most days, unless it is being watched by husband and I'm in the same room. It is so darn depressing, so I put on some nice music and read, or watch a garden show, (Recreating Eden) most mornings. I think it actually does make a difference. If you are trying to stay peaceful and creative yourself, the news is a toxic dumping of fear and negativity that squelches any hopeful or bright or creative feelings. So later on, will make some tea, and set away a few minutes to escape to Enchanted April, set in warm Italy, while here it is cold and rainy February. cheers!

A walk through a favorite neighbourhood, James Bay yielded this intriguing alley that has driftwood on one side and a cool mural on the other. There is so much to see in this area, if you love gardens and creative expression in your landscape.
