Saturday .. what a day .. windy, blustery … rainy .. and then the sun did come out, later on in the day. A sweet promise of what will happen on Sunday.
So I really wanted to play outside, but decided to save that treat for another day.
Looked outside at the trees, branches waving away in the winds … glad that we planted so many here .. years ago. Knowing that the birds have many places to take cover in rough weather. Places to nest … unseen by human eyes. I respect their privacy. Although I would love to see their little homes . .I leave them be.
Happy that Mother Nature is watering the gardens thoroughly . .no worries about dry soil for the plants. Oh, this will be good for everything, the berries, the garlic .. the fruit trees. And the grass .. another opportunity for me to use my newest garden tool .. the push mower.
And I must empty the Rubbermaid containers .. that are full of seaweed. So they can begin to enrich the plants with their mineral laden goodness.
So I didn’t take any pics on Saturday and am posting some of sunnier days: Including some pics when my pal D & I visited the beaches of Sooke. Slowed down when we saw a young deer standing, transfixed, by the side of the road.
Then, later, we’d been busy gathering seaweed and were surprised to see deer prints, freshly made. It had been around our area and hadn’t made a sound!
Visited the beautiful Point No Point for the most delicious chicken soup, homemade bread and tea. Drank delicious water, untainted by chlorine .. Looked out the windows at the magnificent ocean vista. Priceless. What a lovely place .. it’s been years since I’ve been here and I vow to return again.
Wandered the magnificent property. Walked the lovely red bridge .. a truly beautiful place to be.
Glad I took pics .. lovely memories of nature.
Well . on with this new day. Some gardening, you say? Of course! At Dakota Cafe!
