Today we welcomed our second beautiful granddaughter,
a cousin for our first. One word for the day,
Reflecting the city.
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.
…and this presentation by Destination British Columbia entitled The Wild Within.
Have you booked your tickets yet? 🙂
I sense danger with this morning’s sunrise over Vancouver.
Sometimes Wanderlust can simply mean travelling with the imagination.
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.
This year our camellias are more beautiful and abundant than ever
and with them my camelliaddiction has returned, as you can see 🙂
