the oaks and maples of Beautiful British Columbia



I took these pictures a few weeks ago and found them yesterday on my pocket camera. .
and so let's just pretend they are current.

I wanted to tell you that this is naturally how the trees grow here.



I knew you would appreciate that.
The complex is where my mom-by-love lives.



I don't know who her complex gardener is. .
but I appreciate his works of art.

The beautiful days of autumn are over here.
We have rain in the forecast for the foreseeable future and I am seriously wondering how they sell any suede or leather boots here at all.
I'm looking for rubber boots with those lovely cozy linings.
I'll let you know what I come up with.

  1. Beautiful pictures Lovella! Nice to "hang on" to Fall as long as we can. BC is truly beautiful. Have a great day!

  2. Beautiful! And now...only a memory. Those leaves took leave in a big hurry.

    Umbrellas and gum boots...a good idea for the foreseeable future.

  7. Those trees are so pretty. That's a creative gardener! I agree about suede boots in winter even where there's snow and slush. They just don't cut it. Some leather can be waterproof but rubber gummies with insulation are the best for most of our climate. We had snow today - in the Maritimes - about 10 cm. It'll be gone by next week with rain coming. Have a great day.

  8. I think this is the same complex where my in-laws live! Too funny to see somewhere so familiar here. :)
