I love the way the ivy is crawling and creeping up this tree. I love the way it has tendrils that move up at its own pace. It is growing upwards and onwards to heaven above and the sun and the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “On level ground they remain creeping, not exceeding 5–20 cm height, but on suitable surfaces for climbing, including trees, natural rock outcrops or man-made structures such as quarry rock faces or built masonry and wooden structures, they can climb to at least 30 m above the ground.”

Luscious Growth

Luscious Growth

This is the kind of luscious forest growth I like. The older trees have character, texture and colour while the new plant life is coming up around them to live, grow and prosper. 

I like the symmetry of this photograph I took. Although it is kind of off the center aspect ratio, there is balance as the trees and plants offset one another. 

This is an image from the West Coast in Vancouver, British Columbia where the forests have incredible dimensions. They are a lush green in sight and have a musky type of smell in the undergrowth of the forests. 

According to the Vancouver website, “Vancouver has at least 30 different kinds of street trees, of all shapes and sizes, ranging from giant sequoiadendron, elm, maple, chestnut, oak and liriodendron to robinia, ash, hawthorn, birch, linden, beech and hornbeam.”

Take-Off

Take-Off

This is an photographic image near Vancouver, British Columbia as we take off from its Airport at Richmond, BC or better known as YVR. You can see the coastal mountain ranges and the waters of the Pacific Ocean as Richmond is actually a series of islands nestled together in the mouth of the Fraser River. On the right hand side, you can see a wee, little freighter out in the water from that level. We were ascending into the sky onwards and upwards after a good visit on the West Coast.  

I had enjoyed our stay there and will miss my previous province of residence. I will miss British California, as we affectionately call it. 

According to Wikipedia, “Vancouver International Airport is an international airport in Richmond, British Columbia. It is located 12 km from Downtown Vancouver. It is the second busiest airport in Canada by aircraft movements and passengers, behind Toronto Pearson International Airport.”

Kasugai Gardens

Kasugai Gardens

My husband and I were in Kelowna visiting with his previous regiment, the British Columbia Dragoons. They were celebrating their 100th anniversary as an armoured reconnaissance regiment of the Canadian Forces. They are the sister regiment to the The Royal Dragoon Guards in Britain. 

While there, we toured around the Kasugai Gardens which was not part of the city when we lived there. I found it to be quite beautiful and a peaceful and serene place where you can sit down and enjoy the scenery. 

According to the City of Kelowna website, “The garden was completed in 1987 to demonstrate the friendship and union between Kelowna and its sister city in Kasugai, Japan. The park integrates traditional elements notable in Japanese gardens, such as stone lanterns, pine trees, waterfalls and a pond stocked with Koi. It is a beautiful integration of stone, pathways, plants and water.”

White as Snow

White as Snow

This parrot is standing stoically on a branch amidst the greenery. He is “white as snow.” He seems to be happy and content. I like the way he is so elegant and has such beautiful plumage. 

The photograph was taken at Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. According to the Vancouver Parks and Recreation website, “More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

Pink Parrot

Pink Parrot

This is a photograph of a pink parrot that I took at the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. I like the way she looks. I hope you do too.

I added some purple to the backdrop for special effects and a sense of cohesion with the hue levels.

Mushrooms

Mikawoz Mushrooms

Mushrooms

As a little girl growing up in an Polish immigrant family, we would go mushroom picking in the Canadian forests. I do not know what kind of mushrooms these are in the photograph that I took as I was hiking in the woods of British Columbia. There are a lot of very good medicinal mushrooms like Reishi, Shitake, Cordyceps, and Maitake to name but a few.

Old Rusted Miner’s Cart

Old Rusted Miner’s Cart

We went for a hike in Kootenay National Park in British Columbia 86 kilometers from Radium Hot Springs. We came across this old rusted miner’s cart. I think it is really interesting.

According to the Parks Canada website, Paint Pots are “ Iron-rich pools and ochre beds, culturally significant to indigenous people including the nearby Ktunaxa Nation.”

Water Bliss

Mikawoz Water Bliss

Water Bliss

Is there anything more beautiful or blissful than seeing, hearing and feeling a natural waterfall? I love the sound of the water as it comes over the rocks or mountain side and feeling the soft spray of sparkly, wet water droplets. This is one of many beautiful falls in British Columbia.
