Three Of Us

These three beautiful pink roses represent the three of us in our immediate family. I love the dew that has formed on these flowers while late in the autumn in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

We Are Family

Here are some wonderful cacti that have little baby cacti growing around and through the cactus.

Wikipedia indicates “Botanically, “spines” are distinguished from “thorns”: spines are modified leaves, and thorns are modified branches. Cacti produce spines…”

This is a Japanese Garden found near the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There is balance here.

According to the Internet, “Kanso is the Japanese equivalent of feng shui which is all about harmonising yourself with your surrounding environment. It’s every hoarder’s nightmare as it means to get rid of clutter and eliminate the non-essential. … The Japanese aesthetic is part of a seven-part principle to achieve total zen.”

Here is a wonderful parrot who has just cracked open a nut. According to the Internet, “Hailing from South America, the beautiful blue-and-gold Macaw presents a bold mix of bright blue and yellow feathers…Moreover, it’s green forehead offers beautiful contrast to its blue and yellow body.” They are intelligent.

Gnarled With Time

I have always had an affinity for trees with character. This tree has seen some rough times in the deserts of Arizona. It is definitely gnarled with time and yet it continues to survive like a fighter. They are the wisps of nature as it continues to grow in perfect balance.

Fountain And Ducks

I actually took this photo a decade ago. The lush green algae has covered the pond which affectionately is known as the skating pond in winter time at Assiniboine Park, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is technically called the Riley Family Duck Pond and is situated close to the Pavilion and also the Qualico Family Centre.

Young And Old

I love the contrast between the old rose on the right-hand side who has lived her life and is dying now. The beauty on the right is just beginning her life. Roses are just gorgeous even if they come with prickly thorns. It is the way of life – negative and positive making up the whole – isn’t it?

Back and Forth

Back And Forth

These flowers are both looking forwards and backwards at the same time. I find it unusual that they are not all facing the same direction as they would towards the sunshine but they were indoors so I guess that is why they are growing towards different light sources.

I do not know what type of flowers they are but they are pretty. Perhaps, someone could enlighten me?

Canada Place

I was across the water at Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada when I captured this image of Canada Place. I love the sail elements and I also like the peach hue of the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “Canada Place is a building situated on the Burrard Inlet waterfront of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the home of the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel, and Vancouver’s World Trade Centre.”
