Way back in 1986,

when we purchased the farm we inherited

two of these trees in our front garden.

My memory says they were called

Illawarra Strawberry Trees.

Illawarra is a region south of Sydney

and while the trees did produce small

red berries, after flowering, they

looked nothing like the strawberries

which grace our dining table from time to time

These two images were captured in Victoria (BC).

The wall in the background is part of

a memorial to the

1994 Commonwealth Games.

Winter, 2006 must have been cold.

 

 

 

I have never seen this since.

With recent temperatures nudging

the mid 30s Celsius here we live

and mid 40s further inland…

…I thought I would be posting a

December beach photo this week.

 

Then I remembered our 2018 visit to

the Columbia Icefields.

 

For many of us it was our first exposure to falling snow,

…let alone spending time walking

on a glacier in snow conditions.

We were told that the previous week

temperatures had reached 30 degrees.

While our visit was in early June, that is,

not winter, it is the best I could do.

Father after receiving his wig for his

74th birthday about ten years ago. 

That year he had been treated for breast and

at least one other type of cancer…maybe two. 

He celebrated his 86th birthday in mid-October.
