Fun fact for the aspiring urban flower farmers out there: the numbers are in and from 1/3 acre I sold 494 bouquets this season at a local coffee shop/plant nursery a few blocks from my house. A little every day adds up and it’s lovely work, easy for me to manage on my own, with occasional help on deliveries. (Though looking back on that number I’m like ‘when did you do that?!’ ). Bouquets are one arm of my business I unequivocally love. Special thanks to the smiling staff @demitassevictoria for all the ‘down to two’ texts. And a huge thanks for the local flower love #oakbay . Would not be where I am without this community. Now to plant the ranunculus for April!
Picked up bunch of leftover elementary school textbooks at yesterday’s Japanese cultural fair...I used to study on books like this 30+years ago. I wish there was middle/high school history book but alas. Nostalgic and actually fun read.
I was spending time with two littles and wanted to get out of the house; to go for a walk or bike ride. We decided to go geocaching at a few of the near by parks. The littles hopped on their bikes and off we went to #saxepoint . We didn’t manage to find the cache we set out for so, we logged it in the #groundspeak#geocaching app to let the owner of the cache know it might have been compromised by muggles! Muggles is the term geocachers use for non-geocachers!
We later went to #macaulaypointpark
These beautiful swans were just swimming up to the shore. You don’t realize how gigantic of a bird they are until you get an opportunity to be this close to them. They bobbed around near the shore for a while. We went on to discover another geocache. By the time we came back to the shoreline they were gone. As we started walking back to the house four deer crossed our path, almost close enough to touch!
It was definitely a great day spent outdoors!! #discovervictoria

Bad weather always looks worse through a window- Had to get out in it yesturday, and it was awesome. It was windy, it was wet but it was so fresh. So much better than sitting inside all day. Think these long boarders would agree... #travelbugs01
