It's lovely to visit with someone while walking through a garden, don't you think? Today, a friend invited me to stroll through Finnerty Gardens, on the grounds of the University of Victoria. It's known for its rhododendrons, which were, of course, not in bloom today. But there was lovely color to enjoy. A well-planned garden like this one leads the eye from the foreground to the distance with varying foliage and color. A feast for the eyes.
The sun appeared now and again during our walk, and as we were leaving, rays of light caught this tree with golden effect.
When you enter giveaways, don't you hate being the first one to comment? Number One so rarely gets chosen, it seems. Well, this time, Mrs. Random Generator came up with 1, numero uno, un, one! And the winner of the gift bags is Jen of Muddy Boot Dreams. Congratulations! I'll get your parcel in the mail early next week. (If you don't know Jen's blog, please take a look - she takes the most wonderful photos and writes beautifully.)
Tomorrow I'm planning to make applesauce and plant my tulip bulbs. Maybe do a little sewing. Anything special happening with you?
