Lavender is native to the Mediterranean and loves dry, hot temperatures and sandy soils.As a result, it’s a good plant for BC’s Okanagan Valley, and is a highly recommended garden shrub for this drought-prone, desert-like climate.They are hardy, pretty, and the scent is lovely. In fact, science has proven that the scent of lavender is calming and relaxing.Here in the Okanagan, they grow everywhere, in boulevards and around parking lots and in garden plots. Just going for a walk exposes you to a gentle whiff or two.
Greetings from the lovely lavenders of the Okanagan Valley. 🙂
Harebells are lovely light-blue/purplish bell-shaped flowers that are found everywhere on this continent but grow easily in the north because they like cooler temperatures.A field of them makes a lovely green and blue carpet – a relaxing and comforting sight. 🙂
I found these lovely rain washed rosebuds in a friend’s garden.
A north of

I hope you have a rosy day. 🙂
I found this lovely congregant of daisies.
Aren’t they pretty?
Happy Tuesday. 🙂
The wild rose is the provincial flower of Alberta. But there are many of these lovely flowers everywhere, especially in the north.
They grow beside roads and in fields, splashing the green with their pretty pink, so cheery and fragrant.
That which we call a rose would by any other name still smell as sweet. 🙂 ~Shakespeare
Well, not completely wordless.
I am back in the north now but took a photo of this lovely billow just before
leaving the Okanagan Valley.
