Love Mother Earth; her beauty brings me to tears. We have one home & must care for it. Stop the greed and destruction… Cowichan Valley, BC

These beautiful, sunny, warm days of October are so unusual but me and my flowers are just loving it. My flowers are actually growing better than they did in the spring and summer. . . . #campanula #bellflower #purpleflowers #flowerlover #october #octobersun #beautifulbc

Love these little jellyfish-like creatures called By-the-Wind-Sailors, or their scientific name, Velella velella. They float along the sea surface and wash up on our west coast shores in the summer, sometimes covering the sand for long distances. They are easily spotted on the shore with their bright blue color but they dry up and are bleached white in a day or so from the sun. They are said not to be poisonous but scientist don't recommend you touch them because they carry a mild neurotoxin.

What do you think of my vintage Kodak Jiffy Six- 20 Series II? Not bad shape. I'm tempted to see if it still works 😊 . . . #kodak #vintagecamera #photography

Mmmm I don't think I will ever buy store-bought ginger ale again. This is so delicious and so easy to make. The ginger juice is just the byproduct of the Pickled Sweet Ginger (sushi ginger) that I made a couple days ago πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

It was such a beautiful day yesterday in Cowichan Bay Estuary. Wish we had days like this 365 days a year. There were so many birds. I would love to have had a zoom lens - swans and Canada geese and ducks and who knows what else. Was hoping to get a glance of the salmon in the river but tide was slack. Will check again. Just fabulous 😊 . . . #cowichanbay #estuary #marinebirds #cowichanvalley #cowichan #thewarmland #vancouverisland #beautifulbritishcolumbia

Godetia - Azalea flowers -Annuals Some of my flowers are coming back now that the heat has left us. The package I bought was supposed to be of mixed colours but I've only gotten the pinks. Pretty just the same. I love flowers. Do you? . . . #godelia #azaleaflowers #pinkflowers #flowers #flowerlover

Nudibranchs (sea slugs) are so beautiful. They come in so many colours I don't think there is any one colour that's been left out 😍
