odd how some months feel like they are long and others short.
I suppose it's how busy we are and how much we pack into each day.
I've been focusing on healthy eating and walking these past few weeks
in my attempt to shed some of the winter weight gained during the cold winter months.
This lane is tucked away off the beaten track in Oak Bay
we saw sunny yellow forsythia and Kerria Japonica
bright bold red rhododendrons,
various varieties of tulips and daffodils.
By this sign we spied evidence of the hollyhocks yet to bloom
we will come back along this way again as check on their progress.
I love hollyhocks but for some reason they do not grow well in our garden despite my best efforts,
The Iphone has a health app that helps me track my steps and distance walked.
Here is the readout for today...
A friend and I walked in Oak Bay today
around the waterfront and up into Uplands Park.
The native wild lilies are blooming.
The shooting stars are such a vibrant shade and look amazing en masse.
A camellia bloom was purposely placed on a green dumpster waiting for the company to come by and empty it!
I had to stop and capture this image...there is so much unexpected beauty out there is we just take the time to stop and look.
We rewarded ourselves at the end of our walk...
a cuppa with a view at The Oak Bay Marina.
The Karl Lagerfeld graphic tee...
I wore it in honour of Notre Dame.
The devastating fires yesterday at the iconic cathedral in Paris
have shocked and saddened so many
It sounds like they plan to rebuild it.
They have raised millions already with more donations yet to come.
Taken in 2015 when I was last in Paris.
It's time that I prepare dinner so I must close for now...
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
Until next time...
