Fireworks are part of of every Canada Day (July 1) celebration. I love that some flowers look like fireworks when in full bloom. Here are some to enjoy this month.
These wildflowers are blue-bead lilies named for the blue fruit that remains on the stem after the blossoms have died off. They are not poisonous but also not very tasty.
My apologies to those of you who were looking for the calendar before it was up. I’ve been delightfully distracted by the first time gathering of all 6 of our grandkids. 🙂
Although it will be a while before the tulips in my garden emerge, we can enjoy these spectacular beauties captured at Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island last spring. For more shots from that visit, here is the post.
For different screen resolutions, select Free Calendar from the menu at the top of the page, then May 2013. Happy Spring!
Happy Mother’s Day!
I am so blessed to have a precious mother and mother-in-law. These two women are fantastic role models; wives of 55 and 56 years, respectively. I’m so glad they are in my life and in the lives of my children and grandchildren!
And I am also SO thankful for my very special daughters and daughter-in-law that are loving mothers (and aunt) to my beautiful grandchildren. To Krista and Caralyn and Jo, I send my love.
