MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Too hot to create....so.....

....more holiday pictures...


I actually saw a yarn bombing!
Had to take a picture just for proof.



Above and below are a couple of pictures of the mountains we were surrounded by.
They certainly make us feel VERY small!!
 

 The picture below was taken at the Butchart Gardens
in Victoria.  A beautiful place and amazing to know that
one family was responsible for it all and that it had originally 
been a limestone quarry.  The gardens were begun over 
a hundred years ago and they are still owned and operated
by the original family.

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
