Scenes of Summer. Scenes of Spring. I even have a rare appearance by me in a photo from my Sunday hike to Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, north of Whistler, Canada. Now that was a long drive from my home in Vancouver, but well-worth-it. These are my photos posted to social media for the last full week of August, 2015!
From my recent trip along Highway 5A between Kamloops and Merritt, Canada, a beautiful view over Napier Lake at sunset.
A rainbow of colour…
From the Tulips of the Valley Festival, near Agassiz, Canada, this past Spring!
As the rain started to fall…
Taken in the rose garden of Queen Elizabeth Park on one of the very few days we received rain this Summer in Vancouver.
A whole lot of brightness…
from the upper gardens of Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver, Canada. Springtime.
Last week, I had another visit to one of my favourite places. This is Garibaldi Lake in Garibaldi Provincial Park, near Whistler, Canada!
A rebel in focus…
A Kees Nelis rebel, in fact. Taken at the tulip fields, east of Vancouver, Canada, this past Spring!
I could watch these little guys for hours. Taken at VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver, Canada!
A little Summer colour courtesy of these Japanese Water Irises…
VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver, Canada.
Even with a few tulips missing, I enjoyed this scene with the fence at this year’s Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington State, USA.
A beautiful day in the Canadian Rockies!
Looking north from the Icefields Parkway at the Parker Ridge parking lot near the border of Banff and Jasper National Parks.
It’s Double Touch…
as in the Double Touch tulip. Taken at Roozengaarde Display Garden in Washington State, this past Spring.
A favourite scene in Banff from my recent visit…
With majestic Cascade Mountain in the background, looking down Banff Avenue from Cascade Gardens! Taken with my Samsung S5.
As the rain began to fall…
Not sure which rose this is but I thought it was beautiful! Taken this Summer at VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver, Canada.
This beautiful day indeed!
Facing the magnificent Stawamus Chief, this past week in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.
Not sure if this butterfly had a piece of its wing missing but it sure liked this rose. At the Rose Garden in Penticton, Canada at the edge of Okanagan Lake!
I had never expected this waterfall between the middle and upper lakes in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park when I visited last Sunday. It’s actually more spectacular than it shows here. Of course, I could get out of the way 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this weekly post of photos from my social media. Take care and all the best 🙂
