Yellow Cheer

 
Our Leopard's Bane has been blooming it's heart out
for weeks now
with it's cheerful little yellow daisy like flowers...

 
...a wonderful reminder of my mother's flower garden.

 
...and the Pansies love the spring weather as well.
 
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Living Gardens

 
My hubby was hard at work today.  : )
 
The fresh bark mulch in the gardens
make all the plants  seem to pop...

 
Yes, spring is here...

 
..and all the gardens are coming alive.

On the Way

 
Yes, spring is on the way...

 
...these lovely peach blossoms are fading now...

 
...as well as the snow drops, while...

 
...the sweet smelling RockCress blossoms
are opening their delicate flowers.
It makes me smile.  :  )

Mountain Views





 
Taken a few weeks ago,
an impressive view of Mt Baker...

 
from the top of Vedder Mountain. 
It is unusual for the Vedder peak to be free of snow
at this time of the year, but that changed a few days ago
as fresh snow covered the top with white.

A Colourful Lakeshore

 
A few weeks ago we enjoyed the quiet beauty
of Cultus Lake on a warm winter's day.

 
Other than one noisy motorboat,
the beaches were deserted...

 
... the colours were rich and deep..

 
...reflecting the warming sun's rays.

Another Day of Blue Skies

 
Another blue sky day
on the Vedder trails...

 
...with views of Mt. Cheam...

 
...and the Columbia Valley below.
 

 
Taking a well earned
break to enjoy the view.
