Still blooms in the fall garden and they are not asters or chrysanthemums!
The flowers on this Geranium ‘Ann Folkhard’ really stand out
against the reds, russets, yellows and golds of fall.

Quote of the Week

If you do not sow in the spring you will not reap in the autumn.

~ Irish proverb

Damera peltata & pond - October colour

This one is for you, Mom, in honour of your Irish heritage
and what would have been
your 90th birthday on October 9th.
Love you. Miss you.

This tree is called “Big Tree”…a magnificent example of an old growth Douglas Fir. It resides in McMillan Bloedel Provincial Park – Cathedral Grove on the Port Alberni Highway.

As of this date, Big Tree is 826 years old and over 76 metres (250 feet) tall…and it is still growing. Sadie is posed on a fallen log in front to give some scale to the true majesty of this natural wonder.
