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.

Can anyone identify

this flower?

In the heart of downtown,

Victoria, BC

Vancouver Island…

…we found a small garden complete

with its own honey making facility

in the grounds of the

Fairmont Empress Hotel.
