For most people, their first body piercing is of the ear lobe. In my case, my first piercing was my ear drum. Until last week, I never had heard of a Tympanostomy. After many months with a blockage in my ear, I had a Tympanostomy tube inserted last week during a mildly painful procedure. If you have abnormal fluid built up and a loss of hearing for an extended period, it may be for you. Consult your doctor. No photos of my Tympanostomy tube or me screaming in pain at the Otolaryngologist’s office, but please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media.
The majority of the photos on this post features scenes from VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, Canada. It’s not far from my home and I’m fortuanate to have a membership.
This is one of my favourite photos of the beautiful tulip garden at VanDusen from last Spring.
Taken above Moonlit Cove at Sooke, British Columbia, Canada.
A Bench with a view… trust me, there is a view.
Loved this peaceful spot above the hyacinth and baby’s breath at VanDusen Botanical Garden earlier this year!
Tulip and bluebells…
From one of my favourite tiny meadows at VanDusen.
Also from VanDusen, a little Summer brightness featuring these coneflowers.
A little Autumn brightness with coneflowers and more at VanDusen.
After the rain…
I visited this tulip patch many times at VanDusen Garden. Love the colours of Spring!
Hello chickadee 😄
I think she was looking for more sunflower seeds. Taken at the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, Delta, Canada.
Hello Bluebells 😄
Always enjoy seeing these bluebells, especially an entire patch of them. Taken last Spring at VanDusen!
One of my favourite drives in the interior of British Columbia, Canada is along a backroad between Lytton and Lillooet. This is one of the beautiful scenes with horses and snow-capped peaks!
Blooming right now…
The lovely Christmas Cactus, this one from my late Mother.
Who else sees a face in the log?
Maybe it’s just me… taken last Summer on the edge of middle Joffre Lake in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, near Pemberton, Canada
Before the storm…
over fields of blueberries with Autumn colours. Recently near Boundary Bay in Delta, Canada.
I posted this on November 14th…
A little Spring brightness…
I arrived to this planter at VanDusen just as the sun emerged after a downpour. Loved these double tulips and the lily tulip on the left!
Oh yes, I also published my new blog post featuring rebel tulips. If you’re wondering what a rebel tulip is, please read my post A Focus on the Rebels, Tulips of the Valley Festival. I hope you enjoyed this weekly post of photos from my social media. Take care and peace to you!
