Square Foot Gardening

Mel would be proud. The annual Gabriola Home and Garden Tour is today and speaking of gardening, the number one best-selling book in BC at the moment is THE GARDEN THAT YOU ARE by Gabriola's own Katherine Gordon.

Moving House

Here's something you don't see just every day, a full-sized house rolling down your street at 11pm! Made for a bit of excitement last night. Our new neighbours had it barged across the Georgia Strait from Nanaimo and onto Gabriola via giant tractor trailer. And let me just tell you that the fellow who drove the rig definitely earned his paycheque. Our real estate agent told us that he thought our house got here the same way 40 years ago.

View From The Top

Looking southwest from one of the highest points on Gabriola. The land mass in the lower right of the frame is our nearest neighbour, Mudge Island (population 50) and that's Vancouver Island in the background.

Sky and Firs

Yesterday was the summer solstice and it was a very long day indeed here on Gabriola. It looks like mid-afternoon, but Sky and Firs was actually snapped at 7:30 in the evening. I'm not sure when it got dark but there was still light enough to read a book in the backyard at 10pm.

Beware The Wee Ones

The new fawns are too young to be road savvy so please drive carefully.
