Lacy gigantic ferns graced the sides of the road all the way.....
USK tiny church and there is a ferry that goes across the river......Click
i stopped at a antique shop and found this. $150.00, althought this is not a flower! in a sense it is, as we used to use one as kids at home in the old days with two metal tubs filled with rinse water. I remember getting my hand caught in the wringers but fortunately mom was close by and unlocked the wringers. There were enough towels in the wringer to create a space.
A land slide where the whole side of the mountain was washed away by a small creek running thru the bottom. A tradgedy occurred with two in a car. A memorial was set up for them. these pictures were unable to cast the vastness of the slide.
Skeena River and a creek coming into it.....
Field of mixed flowers.....
These were the prettiest purple blue flowers you ever saw, my close up didn't turn out but hopefully you can click on the picture to see.....
These are not wild but do grow in my garden and are the salad material i am going to have for the next two days!!! Mixture of Kale, parsley, spinache and lambs quarters. Then I will squeeze a fresh lime, put in some sliced oranges and strawberries and sprinkle some sunflower seeds and there you have a wonderful fully balanced meal.
this is Betty house and always she has a sheet or a blanket out on the line......just like home!!!
Here is a knarled old tree that is ancient and broken and twisted but looks very elegant among the willows and lilacs.....
That is it for the ride, am home again and back to the routine of unpacking groceries and things. I bought a pink towel with white polka dots for when my granddaughters come because we all like pink.....

WELL! the day started at 5:30 this morning as i had to go to Smithers for work which is about an hour away when you go 90kmh to save on gas. Up to $1.43 now. So I left the house at 7:00am and this is what i saw again---SNOW on top of the mountain again. It is there! beautiful sight. I can never get over the beauty of these mountains!
Foggy down by the river. The road follows the river all the way to Smithers and the sun is trying to shine thru all that stuff. Nice.
A very long day at the office. We start at eight and work straight thru till 4:00. But today we had some difficult cases and worked till six. Overtime pay of course! I was eating supper- an egg sandwich from Tim Hortons and it was the messiest egg sandwich i ever ate as i was driving the thought crossed my mind-its a good thing no one was looking. HUH! I glanced down and next thing i know i looked up and there i was -too close to the ditch. Tried to get out of the rut, got caught in the gravel, over steered and lost control. slammed on the brakes- which someone says you shouldn't do!!! turned a full circle the other way. Clouds of dirt everwhere. For a minute it had me wondering which direction i was facing. I am so thankful no cars were around or that i had veered into the other lane or something. This was the most exciting road stop I have ever been in because the first cop car came up , then another one. Behind that came the ambulance with the ladies getting out of the vehicle and stretching on their blue gloves!!!, Then the fire truck with five of the best good looking guys you ever saw came out of that small truck!! (cops were good looking too and nice) And then the tow truck came and cops were directing traffic--sheesh! It must have been rush hour the way the vehicles were coming and it is usually not that busy. There were many people who stopped and asked if I was okay! One real nice young girl, 21 yrs, who works at toyota, stopped and graciously offered the use of her cell phone and stayed with me until my daughter came. That is her in the pink. So with all these people around we asked if our pictures could be taken. and there we are.
It was worth the $80 dollar tow truck fee to get the picture with the firemen!! Someone had reported it as a roll over that is why every vehicle was supposed to come and be there. Turned out to be a big party anyway, they all had a big laugh and i did not get hurt, or a ticket and my car is still good.
I went home with Clarisa, saw the grandkids, Here is Rhys, all redheaded and smiles. He is so cute!!!
And I am not shaking anymore

my version----I just dumped a bunch of frozen raspberries, maple syrup, coconut cream(use the Thai Kitchen milk brand), 1/2 lemon and cashews- they should be soaked to get a creamier consistency. And you should use agave syrup but I couldn't get any..... of course! put everything in the blender!!
One more good thing to Drink is something called A Green Lantern, Click on the words and you will see. It is also a very yummy drink, except i left out the sugar which makes it still tasty.
SNOW ON THE MOUNTAIN AGAIN!!!! As long as it stays up there but it was pouring rain all afternoon and into the night.

Praise God. I pray for you all that we will all find a place by His side someday.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

I remember as a kid growing up in Bella Coola we lived in a small two bedroom house with three of us kids, I slept in the single bed and my two sister slept together in the double bed ( might i say with a log between them because they always faught as kids will do!!) Outside our bedroom window was this great Hawthorne tree with the beautiful triple petal rose like clusters. One day, i think because the tree was getting old, and and another reason because it was quite windy that day, it came crashing down on the house. We were so sad that it had to be cut down all the way.....
this little lonely flower, although not so little as they grow to four or five feet high, was growing by the road all by itself. They grow wild in the ditches by the road, I don't know the name of them but they sure are pretty. They stink!!! and are full of bugs so leave them outside!!!! the flower itself can grow about a foot across. Actually I found out that they are called Cow Parsnips --click here to find out more.
And everyone knows what these are---oriental poppies. I used to have a white one but i think it turned pink somehow----??????? Click on the link in the sidebar for Kellies Show and Tell. Visit the other blogs to see their pics. !!!!!
