Hanami at Queen Elizabeth Park

Eric All Philosophical
It's become somewhat of a tradition - every year we have a bit of Hanami.  This is based on Hanamis in ealier trips to Japan.  I don't always take photos, but I do enjoy them.

Dinner Party

People At Table
My house warming last month was a lot of fun, but not everyone could make it.  I decided to have a smaller party and invite some missed friends and their kinds over for dinner.   Somehow, whenever children are out, people want pictures and kids seem to understand this role and sometimes act the part.


You have seen Alex and Kale before.

A Number Of Sword Ferns
For earth day, the UBC Botanical Garden had an open house.  Helen had never been so we decided to take advantage of the busy but free day to go walk around.

This is perhaps the 5th time I've been to the garden and I'm still learning things.  There Rhodo collection really is something else and I enjoyed the climbing species.
