Happy Thursday. 🙂
Happy Friday. 🙂
Amid the cold of the north, a reminder of summer.
Happy Friday. 🙂
During my last trip home to the Okanagan I found a number of roses still bravely blooming in Penticton’s public rose garden. It was very overcast with occasional misty rain and a very sharp wind.
Some were faring better than others, but I was surprised at how resilient they were.
Given how hard-hit British Columbia has been by heat waves, forest fires, floods and landslides, all in less than five months, we may all need to become much more resilient than we have been.
At this time of year, it’s indoor flowers.
These yellow daisies are still bright and pretty, even though they are fading and will be over soon.
I am back in the north and it is overcast and snowing (it will snow at least a little every day for the next six weeks), but I enjoyed a very nice autumn.
Happy Friday, happy weekend. 🙂

Aren’t these flowers striking? A beautiful capture from Stuart.
In Penticton, roses are still to be found, budding and blooming.
I don’t know how much longer they will last, but they are a lovely find.

The bees were very busy around this large bush covered in small white flowers.
Humming away, they were industriously putting the finishing touches on their winter food stores.
Nature was very thoughtful to provide this late blooming source of late September nourishment.
