- Delta, British Columbia, Canada
- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Has anyone ever seen a pink hydrangea? I saw this one on my walk today and was absolutely stunned at its beauty! With the change of season, it won't be like this for much longer.
At the end of my street are four of these cabbage-type flowers. The curls on the edges of each petal are phenomenal and reminded me of the lace on a bridal gown.
Scattered among the
rhododendron leaves are a few that are turning a spicy gold and pumpkin orange.
A typical hydrangea is blue or purple like this one. The petals are drying out, though. Can you see the purple on some of the leaves?
Just around the corner and down the street, I spied this lonely flower in its last gasp of life. I love the colours here that range from pale yellow to orangey-red to purple.
