Hello, everyone. One of the highlights from my week happened very close to home. I was returning on Saturday afternoon when a mama racoon and her five kits or babies were outside my front yard. They “posed” for a few photos and then visited my neighbour’s grape vines where they feasted for half an hour. I have included one cute photo on this post. Other photos look back to my recent trips to the Canadian Rockies and Cathedral Provincial Park, as well as Spring and Summer flowers. Please enjoy my Photos of the Week 🙂
A lovely mix…
From the Tulips of the Valley Festival, east of Vancouver, Canada, this past Spring!
Such a beautiful spot!
The view from the edge of Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park, Canada from my recent visit. Mount Burgess is in the center. On the lower ridge to the right is the Burgess Shale, a UNESCO Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site!
Hey mister, can we come play in your yard? 🙂
Taken last Saturday, these baby racoons were very, very close to my home in Vancouver.
Between rows of pink…
A little brightness from the Tulips of the Valley Festival, east of Vancouver, Canada, this past Spring!
Spooky but beautiful…
Loved the clouds and sky from a late evening walk near Pyramid Lake in Cathedral Provincial Park, Canada!
From beautiful Summerland Ornamental Gardens, above Okanagan Lake, in south-central British Columbia, Canada!
One of my favourite views of Vancouver is from the seawall in Stanley Park!
A garden cosmos or Mexican aster, taken recently somewhere in a Vancouver, Canada garden.
The last tulip photo from this past Spring… at least for me.
Considering our early season for flowers, I was surprised to see this parrot tulip in a Vancouver front yard garden so late into May. When I returned a few days later, the petals had fallen to the ground.
Loved this view toward Deception Pass from Fidalgo Island in Washington State, USA!
A whole lot of Summer colour…
from beautiful Cascade Gardens, Banff National Park, Canada.
A wolf? A dog? What do you see on the right side of the lake? Hmmmm… For sure, it’s a beautiful view from above Peyto Lake in Banff National Park.
A rebel amongst the pink…
Really love the colours here from a front yard tulip garden somewhere in Vancouver, Canada, this past Spring!
