Spider Monkey Trees???

Sunday, October 23, 2011 · Posted in , ,

When we were in Vancouver someone showed us these amazing trees.  They look like trees because they are so tall but at the same time they look like a form of cacti.  I was told they are called Spider Monkey Trees but when I went to do this post I googled "Spider Monkey Tree" to get some information on them and came up with nothing.  So I really do not know what these are officially called but they really were a unique tree so I decided to post the photos here.  If anyone does know what these are please let me know!

A long Absence

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 · Posted in ,

I knew it had been quite a long time since I had done a blog post but I didn't realize quite how long until today.  So much has happened in my life and blogging just hasn't been on the forefront.  But I am hoping to change that.  Today I am going to share more of the photos I took on our visit to Vancouver in September.  I did share a number of the Stanley Park photos but Vancouver is such a beautiful city (when it isn't raining) so I have a lot more to share.  Here are few more favorites.

 Flowers, my one true love!

Lovely little street cafe.


There are zero street vendors for flowers where I live but they are
so lovely to walk by.

I just love the rooftop garden on this beautiful building.

Love the details on this lovely, old building.  

Isn't this so amazing, a little room built into their retaining wall, all I could
think of is what an incredible art studio it would make.

These are just so lovely.

Blackberries ripening on vines on the side of the street!
