Bloedel Conservatory

It was a end of fall day when we were visiting the Bloedel Conservatory. i liked the shape and textural architecture of the round dome building. I like ht paths leading up to it and also the water fountains.This building has been used in many TV shows and movies.

According to Vancouver, Parks and Recreation, “Bloedel Conservatory is a domed lush paradise located in Queen Elizabeth Park atop the City of Vancouver’s highest point. More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

Thanks for viewing, liking, commenting, sharing and purchasing.

Two Saplings

I took this photograph, believe it or not, was taken on December 15, 2011 north of Winnipeg and north of Riverton on Lake Winnipeg.  Winnipeggers and Manitobans will note the lack of winter.  That winter not only did the snow come late but it left early unlike this year.  This has been one of the longest “winters” record in Winnipeg’s history.  Even today, on May 10, 2013, it feels very cold and almost like snow weather.  In fact, the projected low overnight is 0˚ Celsius or 32 ˚ Fahrenheit.

These are my favourite two saplings up at our cottage.  I love looking at them as they change with each season from no leaves and snow to buds, to full leaves and then gently losing them to the wind and gravitational pull of the Earth.  Seasons come and seasons go as time ticks on.
