Four grown kids, five delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I'm adapting to life in a Vancouver condo after decades in a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist, in this urban life after 60!
I have to admit I was tempted to stay inside all day yesterday, enjoying the pretty snow views from the comfort of my armchair.
But I finally roused myself and got outside with my camera in the late afternoon (after a nap -- love to grab an afternoon nap when the opportunity presents itself!).
Garden details draw attention to themselves
Intricate botanical sculptures outlined with snow's extravagant strokes
Fascinating and seductive . . .
Delicate structures invite . . .
insist on a closer examination. . .
classic colour combinations seem like brilliant revelations. . .
Clichés repeat the secret of their success . . .
Oh, and I'm not done yet. . . There are many more photos from that afternoon walk and I may subject you to share some with you tomorrow. Got some pretty snow where you are? Or so much you're weary of it by now? Or not enough, or none at all? I'll be honest and say I'm counting on rain taking ours away in time for my Saturday run, Sunday at the outside. What's the weather situation where you are?
