Spent the weekend on Saltspring. Saw the family for my birthday, did a little nursery hopping and managed to sneak in a little gardening on my side project. Amongst all this I took in the sights, and generally took it easy. It’s interesting how the more time you spend with plants and nature the more you appreciate the quiet, “real” moments in life. Here I spent some time watching the birds enjoy their afternoon. Turn your volume up high and take a moment out from your busy day.
