Palms and Pretties

Palms and Pretties

Part four of a series based on a recent trip to British Columbia in May with my husband.

One stop on our B.C. trip took me to a home with a fabulously landscaped yard. Palms flourished under the expert attention of the homeowner. Our native prairie climate certainly gets much too cold in winter for these plants to survive.

Tucked in every corner of this garden were garden ornaments, such as this stone bird…

and delightful curios, like this metal lobster offering a pearl ring to who knows what.

These smooth river rocks were an interesting addition to this path…

And these concrete stepping stones were crafted by the homeowner, forming a small patio.

A path leads to water at the edge of the property, and was full of water lilies, not yet in bloom.

I could have spent many pleasant hours here, enjoying the hospitality, the conversation, and the view.

  1. What can I say? This all brings back wonderful memories of our few visits to British Columbia–though we didn’t see the house and yard you feature in this post. Unbelievable artistry and great photos! 🙂
