My hubby and I like to find different places to explore on our weekend Date days, so yesterday we visited a Country garden way in the back of Mission BC. The garden was the labour of a woman named Hilda who for the past 32 years has carved a beautiful sanctuary out of the side of the mountain she lived on with her husband. The garden is 5 acres, and includes a waterfall and creek running from the top of the property down to the bottom. It has two Koi ponds and a huge Treehouse built between two huge Cedar trees.
Hilda passed away in April after suffering a very short bout of cancer leaving her husband of 38 years alone. He has opened up the gardens as a tribute garden for his wife and invited all in to see her labour of love. Over the next few days I will post photos taken at her garden. It was such an amazing and serene beautiful space I have to share it. And it is a love story lasting over 40 years that brought tears to my eyes.
Here is some of the photos and over the next few days I will post a lot more. Make sure to come on back and enjoy!
I think this is a Banana Slug, pretty slimey thing it is!!
It was a dreary cloudy grey day and for about half the time we were there yesterday, it rained. But I do love raindrops!
A wet Poppy with some awesome raindrops.
I have about a thousand photos to go through, so this is it for this post, more tomorrow. Check out yesterday's photos for the awesome Fuchia's that were all over the garden as well.
