Nimpkish Lake on Vancouver Island

NimpkishLk_Apr2013Here’s a photo I took of Nimpkish Lake on Sunday. It was a bright beautiful morning where the lake shone like glass. Surprisingly, this lake is often used for windsurfing.

It was featured on Weather Window on Global TV on Monday evening.

VWs and Daisies

Don’t you just love the  sound of an older model VW van or bug makes? Anytime I see one I smile.

Happy Groom

I didn’t see the bride but I imagined  she carried a bouquet of daisies. To me, VWs and Daisies go together.

Little Carrots

I’m so excited! My second crop of radishes are ready and the little carrots are ready to pull! 

I remember my grandparents vegetable garden; it seemed to take up their whole back yard. Rows of corn, potatoes, pole beans, onions and carrots!  

Grandpa would take my brothers and I out to the garden to “help” gather some veggies to take home.  It was like magic to us that growing under the feathery green tops were delicious crisp little carrots.  Grandpa would pull 3 or 4 for each of us and rinse them off at the garden hose. We would eagerly gobble them down asking for more! 

Funny, Mom had a hard time getting us kids to eat our carrots at the dinner table; I guess they tasted way better right out of the ground seasoned with a bit of dirt.

Jazz’s Photo Shoot

Jazz for the most part is camera shy, however this past Friday he didn’t seem to mind.  I think that’s because he didn’t want to leave his cool shady spot. 🙂

    

From the Garden

From the GardenRemember my post in June about planting a few vegetables in the garden this year?

Well, It’s been just over a month since I planted the tiny seeds and already I’ve been rewarded with fresh radishes and lettuce! 

Patio Garden

It’s very easy to grow vegetables… even in the rain!

It’ll be awhile before the carrots are ready to pull.


30 Day Photo Challenge

30-Day Challenge Day 3: Clouds

It has been far too long since I last posted on my blog! 

For the month of June I participated in a Flickr “Photo-a-Day” challenge hosted by White Peach Photography.  My good friend Meesh suggested we take the challenge.  I’m glad she did – it was certainly challenging… and lots of fun!  Thanks Meesh! 🙂

Here is the link to my 30 Photos.

So, now that I’ve completed that challenge… it’s on to the next! Do you want to know what it is?


Keeping A Promise Made…

April 22, 2011 was Earth Day.   My sister-in-law, who happens to be one of my very best  friends, wrote an inspirational article in her blog sharing ideas to help live a “Greener” way.

I made a commitment to plant vegetables in my garden this year and I’ve finally been able to keep my promise. 

Last Sunday I planted  lettuce,  radishes and  carrots in patio planters.

After a week, the lettuce and radishes have started to sprout!   Aren’t they the cutest little radishes?!  Little Radishes
