Violets In My Garden

A moment after the rain….

so peaceful how can one not love this

Memories Never Leave Us. They are in our Hearts no matter what Life brings us in the future.

Droplets of water after the rain makes everything look so fresh.

After The Rain Beauty

Fresh and all full of rain droplets. Love taking this kind of pictures. Planted the Allium bulbs last fall with the hope I would see them this year.

I keep on looking to see if I see a reflection in any of the droplets… One day I will master this too.

Wishing You all a nice Sunday…

Pileated Woodpecker

This was totally amazing to see. First we did hear this loud noise from some kind of bird. Though we had no idea what it was from. I could not believe my luck, a Pileated woodpecker. The largest woodpecker alive in North America. It’s really interesting as I just not long ago was looking up the different kinds of woodpeckers we have here in Canada.

you can see it on the right sitting on a tree trunk. I believe this one is a male.

Here I am walking at Awenda Provincial Park and look what we did see. Unfortunately for me I did not have my telefocus lens with me… but taking my time I did get a flyby shot of this amazing Woodpecker.

A Walk At Awenda

Trillium’s are out in fill bloom all over the forest. We always had seen them towards the end of the season. A drive up to Awenda Provincial Park last Sunday was showing us them in full bloom.

Almost all of the trillium’s here are white..

Was looking to see if I find any pink or red once. Had seen them in another forest just as they started to come into blooming seasons 2 weeks ago.

Magnolia In Bloom

Spring is finally hear…

Though It feels like we skiped Spring once again… with +30 in past days.

So loving this heat…

Well until today.

Rain rain rain all day.

It’s Ok too grass and flowers love it.

My Magnolia tree is In full bloom once again this season… Glad I did get some great pictures before the rain today.

Blooming To Perfection

I received this amazing request this morning…yess so cool!

Always love taking pictures of water droplets on anything I can find. This day May 9 it was one of those days where we had some rain just the morning off. So I know there would be some great pictures. However this tulip took my eye right over. It was the first one to open up this year and it looked just so special in the new stage of life. Sometimes I feel many people see the beauty in the open flowers only.

This to me was even more special.

I feel the three leaves surrounding the inner pedals, are like a mother hugging her child.

For this shot I used my Canon EOS 70D and used my Macro lens to get it nice and close up.

Have a open mind look for the unusual things in life. See the beauty though your heart and soul….Just have fun.I very seldom modify my pictures. I may crop them here and there to take out extra that is not needed in picture.

Forget-Me-Not

Somehow a bird must have drooped this seed in my garden…

One of my favorite flower in the spring. It has a special meaning to me.. in so many ways. My childhood back home in Switzerland and memories of happiness growing up so free and loved. With bunnies in the garden and us playing with the Guinea pigs in the fields that where our pets. How could you not love to grow up with this kind of happiness.

Some may never ever experience this kind of joy. I am so grateful to have had this kind of joy.

My Mom ( Mutt) and Dad (Vat) always loved us no matter what even now my mom is the most amazing lady I know.

Unconditional Love for her kids.. even if we give her up and downs. Kids kind of do that to their parents… we all know that.

But mom, in my case loves all of me… Dad in heaven is always looking out. I know He doesn’t judge me for my up and downs.

“No one can take this happiness ever away!”

Because no matter what, bonds don’t break … ever.

“loved Once in Heaven are always with us …we never forget them and they are always in our hearts.

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOREVER

Child Sweater

Love how this sweater turned out. I am blessed to have had this order from a grandma to knit this sweater for her grandson.

It always is special to see that at times people do reach out fro handmade items. I n my case it is handknit with my love for the passion of joy and happiness in my knitting this special gift for her grandson.

A pattern I had from a Magazine called Penguin from many years ago…

Love The Sound Of Birds

There is something so beautiful to wake up in the morning with the sound of birds singing. I love to have the window open and hear them sing to me.. well so it seems at least to me..

I love to take there pictures too. So we have Yellow Finch now feeding on the tree in our backyard lately.

Grenada, I’ll Be back One Day

This last morning at the beach was the perfect ending to this amazing trip…

Had this stray dog pop himself down right by my side as I was reading. I thought this was to funny…

Memories and Joy in my life.

I say Thank You to all that made this trip so special and a joy in my Life .

…..Ah Yes already a month passed. It has been so amazing and fun… I am speechless with all I have see and experianced and that in only 23 days.

Do You see what I see?

Beach Day on Grand Anse, Grenada

Another beautiful Day…Monday January 20th. hearing the ocean surf. They (Resort) say close the balcony doors when you go to sleep…

Not what I want to do… I feel safe and love to falling asleep and waking up with listening to the waves crushing onto the beach. Kind of miss the rocking to sleep on the “Lady Natalie” though. The ground I walk on is moving to the waves….

Going to be another beautiful day by the beach… thinking of where the Lady Natalie may be sailing to on her next adventure as I watch he drift away to in the Sea…what are the chances I’ll be here again one day I ask myself?

Every Day here is beautiful….

My Last Evening sunset joy and happiness.

I say Thank You to all that made this trip so special and a joy in my Life

The Royal Clipper in the harbor of St. George, Grenada
Last evening by the Beach.. Grand Anse
Can you see The Royal Clipper in the distant. So beautiful she has I believe 5 Masts if I recall that correctly.

memory and love in my life.

Umbrella, Grand Anse Beach

This was totally something I have never done before… Go to a Restaurant and eat on my own.

I was hungry and was tired of eating on my own for past days. So thought I’ll go check out this “Umbrella’s Beach Bar” that the Resort I stayed in recommend and it was soooo close…

Cool I can walk on the sandy white beach to my restaurant and don’t have to worry about drinking and driving… OMG I am going to sit down and have a meal on my own… glad I did!

…shortly after I ordered my supper and yes glass of wine… this place started to rock… Band, that I didn’t know started to play and believe me this bar was rocking along all night…Absolutely a must visit if you are ever at Grand Anse Beach in Grenada!!! This bar was totally a hot spot to be at…

Red red Wine ….

Walking home to the resort I stopped by the resort directly to my place Coyaba you should have heard the music playing there.. so romantic, I decide to sat for a little and just listen to it.

Grand Anse Beach Is Awaiting You

Wake up girl, it’s a new day …I had 6 pillows to snuggle up to. OMG that is luxury…Bed was sooo crazy big. I could sleep in any direction and my toes never stuck out of the bed..LOL

Looking out to the my perfect view and hearing the ocean … what more can I wish for on this day of Sunday, January 19. 2020. Most are dealing with snow back home..

I am the lucky one to walk on the white sand of Grand Anse in Grenada.

Walking in the white sand…
Making memories for my heart.

Seeing the Luxurious Resorts that are $$$+ for one night say… Cool yes look at the places… seriously? Not one person was there!

I think I am the lucky one staying at Allamanda Beach Resort. I have the staff at this Resort talking to me enjoying the beautiful sunshine in the garden… I believe that is what counts. This gentleman working there said he used to live in Scarborough. How cool is that… Grand Anse Beach is Beautiful

I am surrounded by absolutely beautiful sunrise, beach, the water is my joy, luxury, happyiness, amazing people, happiness, restaurants, sunset….

Peaceful joy in my heart and mind
