Summer images

What a summer we have had – after such a looong and cool spring the summer arrived with a bang with incredible lushness not to mention the heat! We are very fortunate in urban Vancouver that we haven’t had to deal with the chaos being experienced in BC Interior communities – but did get a taste of the challenges that some communities face with a compromised air quality – a true dystopian feel and look in our fair City. The recent rain was welcome that cleared things up! A few images from our garden.

This wee bee was found sleeping in Section A japanese anemone – I think I disturbed getting a little close!

It’s always amazing the variety one finds in everyone’s gardens – a few spring images from section 1 – please sun come back in full force! We miss you
