I turned to nature for most of

my delicate photos this week.All photos from Butchart Gardens,

Vancouver Island.

I’m fairly certain it would take a delicate touch

to rake this gravel so  neatly

A few years ago MGW decided we needed

a Japanese Garden style garden bed…

complete with raked gravel such as above.

With as light as touch as I could muster I raked our gravel.

Re-raking several times when necessary.

As we stood back to admire our handy work

Maggie (our ageing Labrador) decided to join us.

I believe all dogs should be named ‘Electricity’ .


Because they take the shortest route between two points.

 Maggie was no different.

Directly from the concrete verandah across

our freshly raked Japanese Garden bed, to our side.

We have a near new rake for sale if anyone wants one!!
