Yesterday started with a trip to the beautiful Abkhazi Japanese Garden in the morning, moved on to a couple of hours with Gail Sibley, pastel artist extraordinaire, in the afternoon, and ended with an evening walk along the water to downtown Victoria. What a great day it was.
There was so much to see at the Abkhazi garden: flowers, trees, and a few surprises.
Flowers everywhere, hiding in the shade, peeking out into the sun.
Water featured lilies and turtles.
Mason bee house.
And of course, trees, trees, trees
Then on to a delightful couple of hours at the Moka House coffeeshop to meet Gail Sibley in person and talk about pastels, painting, life, and pastels.
No photos from the evening walk. I forgot my camera. But it was lovely end to a very fine day.
