Off Again

Yay, at least for me anyway.

I think Ian is a bit disappointed.  Back in the fall!

This was taken at a J24 regatta in Barbados, I think it looks a bit like a painting.

Shut the Door, Already Four?

Wow, four years already. How fast the time has gone, although I have certainly not accomplished what I want at Kilbourne Grove, I have made a good start.

Thank you for following my adventures over the last four years and always being supportive (even when I have not been able to post photos, lol).

I am returning to Barbados in the next couple of weeks and I shall up date (bore) you soon.

Sorry, Sorry, Sorry

I shot myself in the foot. What does that expression mean anyway, and where does it come from?

I was so proud of myself. I have a new iPad and I brought it back with me to Canada. Soooo much lighter then my laptop, no laptop bag so I have an extra carry on, super  important.

However, I should have tested it first. I use my photos from Picasa to post on my blog, and you have to right click. You can’t on an iPad, so no photos and no posts.

Till I return anyway…

On My Way

By the time you read this I will be on my way back to Canada, once again leaving Ian behind for 6 weeks.

Fun for me, getting to enjoy my friends, family and yay, my garden. Not fun for Ian who still has to work, oh well, someone has to do it…

The Year in Review 2012

Another year has come and gone, we are now 2/3’s of the way through our posting in Barbados, where does the time go!


I visited the Barbados Horticulture Society Garden Show for the first time. What beautiful hibiscus!


Ian had to go to Nassau on business, so I tagged along. Another country to add to my count.


A week long cruise to five different Caribbean islands bumped up my country count some more.


Had my first face to face visit with the fabulous Mr. T.


Back  to visit Brian Bixleys garden, I know feel the need for Sanguinaria canadensis ‘Multiplex’, or double bloodroot.


My white eremurus finally bloomed, only took 2 years.


Lots of garden visiting going on, this was an amazing garden in Rosedale.


Trying to keep up my design skills, despite not working for two years.


Yikes, hard to see all my freshly applied gravel

Spent most of my first weeks at home, weeding.


Got to see a tiny bit of fall colour before we headed back to Barbados.


Perfected the art of Sundowners, or cocktails to you northern folks.


Christmas on the island, what a glorious feeling.

Interested in what happened last year? You can read about it here, 2010 here.

Old Year’s Night

I heard New Years Eve called Old Year’s Night the first December we were living in Barbados, and I find it charming.

I would like to thank everyone who has followed my blog over the last several years, each and every one of you has touched me in some way.

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy New Year, here is to 2013.
