Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

Spring Flowers in Stanley Park - Vancouver

Tuesday, Stanley Park in Vancouver was a pallet of colour as seen in these images. All photos were taken with a Sony DSLR A100 digital camera (10.2 megapixels). The photo above is of rhododendron flowers that were taken with my HP Photosmart R717 digital camera during the past week.
A cherry tree near the tennis courts and a close-up shot of the blossoms in the photo below.

The image below shows more blossoms. Even the moon made an appearance. The clear blue skies certainly helped to make excellent photos.

Below is another close-up shot of flowers on another rhododendron shrub near the tennis courts. These flowers were also taken within the last week using the HP camera.

Magnolia flowers in bloom on a tree above. Below is a close-up shot of some of the lovely flowers.

Looks like another magnolia below. Lovely colour.

A lovely display of magnolia above and the red flowers of a rhododendron brighten up a spring day.

These white blossoms look wonderful, don't they?

Well, I'll have more photos later. Plenty of waterfowl and other critters were seen that day as well. I'll post those photos later after my supper. Enjoy these images and comments if the mood strikes.
