The Piano that sits at Turkey Head on the walkway by The Marina in Oak Bay.
On a recent walk,
Mother and my Sister sat down to play a duet!
I think this is a native plant.
Pretty in Pink.
Here's the wee lending library box on Clare Street.
I walked around the area and loved the friendly greetings that I got from the people in their gardens.
The houses are a mix of old and new and there are lots of patios and porches and beautiful cottage style gardens lining the streets.
It's an old fashioned neighbourhood...like the kind I grew up in when I was young.
(probably more accurately "obsessed" with a few of our problem beds.)
The ones in particular where the dog violets have gone from pretty flowering plants with dainty purple blooms to non flowering seed bearing maniacs!
It must be the hot summer that has them thinking reproduce or die!
The first bed has been weeded, dug and covered with the help of a young woman who lives across the street from Our Humble Bungalow...
I am taking a short break from the blog and will be posting on Instagram.
