 It never snows on southern Vancouver Island, well today it did!!!!!
Inspired to create a painted wreath not to go out in the flurries and pick to make one. Last of the programs for the library coming up, looking forward to a weeks holiday and big kids home for the holidays :)
View from the kitchen window, there is an inlet, ocean and mountains somewhere out there.
