After our big February snow last year, spring came in swiftly as it does on this wet, west coast. Here are some photos of highlights from Spring 2017:

From snow to snowdrops, an early sign of spring.

Spring01-1

Lots of spring-time walks, urban, rural. This one with J in some lovely woodland in Royal Oak.

Spring08

The city comes alive with cherry and plum blossoms from late February until early April. This beautiful tree is in the Gardens at Government House.

Spring10

Continued love affair with our beautiful neighbourhood.

Spring11

In May, dear friends visit from Colorado.

Spring12

Made time for a treat at my favourite coffee establishments. Hey Happy on Johnson Street (left), and Hide + Seek on Oak Bay Avenue.

Spring13

As always, we spend time with the cats! Miss Bunny Drummond really loves GJ.

Spring14

One of my favourite designers opened a new shop on Johnson Street in June. No stranger to Victoria, John Fluevog opened an early store here in 1972. I’m happy he’s back!

Happily wearing our Fluevogs today!

GJ is looking mysterious in his Swordfish from the mid-1990s. Vintage Tie and velvet smoking jacket complete his ensemble. At Arrogant Pirate, Dragon Alley, Victoria BC.

An innocent walk-about and shop-poking-in turned to impulsive shoe purchase yesterday, and I couldn’t be more pleased. My dreams of owning Fluevog shoes were realized at a lovely store called Heart & Sole on Cook Street in Victoria. I was so inspired, that when I got home, I ordered a different pair from the Sale section of the Fluevog website! Naughty naughty, wonderfully naughty!
