A Moment of Reflection on Sunday

Blasted Church Winery

Yesterday I drove further South in the valley desperately seeking Spring.  They are usually 2 weeks ahead in fruit and wine production but on the surface they seemed to be on the same level as we were.  The season is definitely in the air with warm sunshine and temperatures but you can still see snow peaking out at the top of the surrounding mountains on the Thompson Plateau.

  I did see 6 whitetail deer and 2 California mountain sheep by the side of the road. For those of you who remember watching wildlife cross the road on your journeys they have had fencing up all over the province at the side of major roads for years.

Whitetail Deer

I did plant my pansies and primroses in pots yesterday and they sit cheerily on my deck. I guess that will have to do...for now.

  1. How beautiful! Everyone I know is eagerly looking forward to Spring this year. Even NC had more than it's share of winter!

  2. Nice vineyards and landscapes! what a peaceful place!



  3. Thanks for sharing your drive. I love the Okanagan. I have never visited Nk'Mip but I have toured many of the other wineries.

  4. Very peacefull place... perfect to enjoy quietness - at least in the picture I feel it that way, maybe it was noisy! - but also for reflection.

  5. And down here in the south we're wishing for autumn! What an interesting season we've all had. Record lows for the northern hemisphere and record hailstorms here in Melbourne. Never a dull moment.

  6. Beautiful photographs, Valli! What a place. I'm looking forward to Spring too.

  7. so the fencing works? i wish they'd do that here--i get so morose seeing all the carcasses along the side of the road!

  8. How beautiful and peaceful.. what a majestic place for reflection!

  9. I adore these peaceful serene pictures. I'd love to see more of them in future posts!
