Picnic table scenery at Cherry Point, BC. Overlooking Salt Spring Island and anchored tanker.
What was once unspoiled, peaceful beauty is now filled with oil tankers waiting their turn to complete their journey to Vancouver. The view to the right shows Saanich Peninsula, snow-topped Mount Baker, and more anchored tankers.
My 3 Mexican Shellflower surprises of the summer 😊 I wonder if there are any more surprises coming? I hope so 😍😎
Oh, just about missed this bloom! It has started to wilt already; probably a lot faster in this heat than it would normally.
You might wonder why I'm so excited about these Mexican Shellflowers. They are quite rare around here, haven't heard any locals growing them, and trying to buy them locally is almost impossible.
I would love to see a garden full of multicolored Mexican shell flowers. It would be stunning.
