the art installation is complete… it was finished on Saturday… we got the last of the twenty-nine framed waterlily photos up… and when I say we, I mean my friend, while I passed the odd thing to her…

she did an amazing job… not only are the pictures even and square, there are stickies in the bottom corners so they stay level, lol…

when I described a wall of water lilies she was thinking it might be a bit, shall we say, boring… now that it is all finished she agrees it was the right choice for me… I love water and the lily flowers too…

every time I walk down the stairs, I see something different

this one reminds me of a walk through the Leo Mol garden with George in the summer of 2011… the ducks were a complete surprise in the pond… had never seen them before or since…

this one brought back my time at the Butchart Gardens in Victoria with my kids, just before they moved from Vancouver Island… we had been on the cruise to Alaska, and spent time in Seattle… finished off with a wonderful day in the Gardens and had tea at The Empress… so many memories…

this one was taken in October of 2011 when we spent ages sitting on a bench admiring the pond… might have been one of our last walks in the Park…

last night my daughter gave the installation her stamp of approval… phew…

wonderful to have these different memories as I move up or down the stairs…
