let’s celebrate

Happy Birthday

Jillian – 13 on the 20th

and Dad – 52 on the 21st

and Queen Victoria on the 24th

in Canada it is a much-loved holiday

read the history behind it and why it is celebrated in Canada but not the U.K.

the camus is blooming in Beacon Hill Park

Victoria residents see it as a sure sign of Spring

the peacocks are strutting their stuff

no wonder mother duck is having a snooze

how would you like to keep track of nine busy ducklings?and the turtles are basking in the sun

at home, the iris are blooming


a parcel from Japan

with materials for Bryan’s workshopI collected stamps as a child – are there any kids who still do that?

      Kjerstin – I’ve never seen so many people enjoying the Park, started with an ice cream at the Drive-In. Yes, this weekend is always special.
