and dare I say it...
I'll be stopping in at Tiffany's, Hermes, Eileen Fisher and Holt Renfrew.
A four day "weekend" is a wonderful opportunity for a getaway
we have been so immersed in work and renovating
we've decided to take a break.
We'll be meeting friends for dinner at a French bistro....
and I plan to swim in the hotel pool...
(ever so gently so as not to injure my back which has been on the mend)
walking and exploring
we will be spontaneous and relaxed.
The King beds are luxurious, roomy, comfy
sleep is easy.
The views are amazing
from the snow capped mountains on the north shore
to the wide ocean expanse of Kits beach and points beyond Point Grey...
our hotel is simple, clean and convenient...
centrally located with parking and we are in the hub of the city,
the shopping mecca on Robson Street.
Lovely daughter and her friends will be staying here taking care of things
so Pepper will not be lonely.
As I peer out the window I see sunshine blue skies and a few cotton ball clouds dancing slowly high above our bungalow. I am filled with hope, optimism and the promise of better weather.
It's been quite some time since we have had a patch of blue stay around this long and I have missed the sunshine.
Feels like a perfect time to take you all along on a garden tour!
Yellow has been on my mind
I've been craving sunshine
and thankfully it's here!
Yellow popped in last weekend for Sunday Roast Beef dinner with the family.
Lemons floated in our water goblets
daffodils cheered us on...
aren't these sweet?
I cannot remember their name but they grow like weeds for me.
daffodils naturalized in the lawn
with a large euphorbia in the background
the mighty acacia tree
(whose days are numbered)
we are having it chopped down and replaced by an apple tree
as the cost of maintaining this tree has reached a staggering sum of $500 per annum.
looking north towards the garden shed
pink hellebore putting on quite a show
rhubarb looks healthy
won't be long before I make some crumble
the garlic is obviously happy to see the sunshine
the onions I planted last fall are up
spring onions indeed!
clematis montana rubens will be a riot of blooms in a few weeks.
"Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!"
my packing list awaits
I've got to get busy now
I 'll close and send my heartfelt wishes.
I hope that you have a Happy Easter Weekend!
glimpses and snippets of fun, food and frivolity
if I am lucky!
