This past week I visited a dahlia farm and garden for the first time in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. I was so amazed and inspired that I’m working on a blog post featuring those beautiful flowers. Hopefully, I will have it finished before Christmas 🙂
In the meantime, my photos of the week posted to social media included a cute marmot that I met in Garibaldi Provincial Park and a whole lot of brightness. I hope you enjoy them. These are my photos of the week!
A little brightness…
Earlier this year in the tulip garden, Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada.
One of my favourite spots…
From Panorama Ridge, a beautiful sunset over Garibaldi Provincial Park, Canada.
Double Touch with drops…
As in the Double Touch tulip, and let’s add some baby’s breath too.
Taken earlier this year in gardens of Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver.
This past week, I visited the gardens of Krause Berry Farms in Langley, British Columbia, but the Monarch Butterflies are gone. I am so glad to have this and other photos from my visit earlier this Summer.
A hint of daffodil…
I was very lucky to visit these beautiful gardens outside the Stanley Park Pavilion a few times earlier this year.
I was amazed at the gardens of the Chateau Lake Louise in Banff National Park when I visited last month. Very bright and colourful on a beautiful Summer’s day!
A strong, yet cute profile 😄
Marmot in the meadows under the Black Tusk, Garibaldi Provincial Park.
The beautiful Tiger Lily and some lupins too. Earlier this Summer in a meadow along the Duffey Lake Road between Pemberton and Lillooet, Canada!
Around a tree we go…
A bright scene from Roozengaarde Display Garden during the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington State, this past Spring.
Marigolds on a Summer’s afternoon. Last month in beautiful Cascade Gardens, Banff National Park, Canada.
A little Summer colour courtesy of this pretty dahlia…
recently in VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver.
A little odd?
I’ve had this photo ready for posting for months but wasn’t sure about it. I kind of like the rebel Kess Nelis with newly emerging yellow tulips though. Taken at the Tulips of the Valley Festival, near Agassiz, Canada!
Rose petals with drops, earlier this Summer at VanDusen Botanical Garden.
I made a few trips in the Spring to see the daffodil gardens on Burnaby Mountain, near Vancouver. It also has excellent views of the North Shore mountains, ocean, and city.
I hope you enjoyed this weekly post of photos from my social media. On this International Day of Peace, I wish you all the peace in the World 🙂
