Happy Mother’s Day

I know I posted this photo for International Women’s Day only two months ago, but I love the people in it so much that I had to re-post it for Mother’s Day today as it expresses everything about what being a loving mother and grandmother is all about. So, Happy Mother’s Day to these two wonderful mothers and to all the wonderful mothers, grandmothers and mothers-to-be who might be visiting thechangingpalette today, and of course to all of you who like me are remembering our own mothers, no longer with us but always lovingly in our thoughts.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

Perfect for this week’s Photo Challenge: Reflecting was this glorious sunrise last weekend reflected in the water lapping Rathtrevor Beach at the lovely Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Resort, Parksville, British Columbia where I was staying.

An early morning walk along the beach followed with equally stunning reflections seen in the tidal pools left by the receding water.

You can see why our Province is known as Super, Natural British Columbia. Enjoy the slideshow with a few more photos from the walk…

I sense danger with this morning’s sunrise over Vancouver.

“The Flowers That Bloom in the Spring Tra La”


 
No, my wanderlust has not taken me to the tulip fields of Holland but to the Tulips of the Valley Festival here in Chilliwack, British Columbia, an hour’s drive from Vancouver. My last visit to the festival was in 2015 and which I shared with you in my post Petal Power. With the Festival’s new location this year our visit on Tuesday was perfect for this week’s Photo Challenge as no borders needed to be crossed to visit this little piece of heaven on earth filled with its seven million blooms. Enjoy the slide show and have your spirits raised with this seasonly perfect Gilbert and Sullivan classic from the Mikado performed by the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company.
