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.

The Year in Review - Rosemary - Late Winter 2014

 Starting about February the Rosemary plant I have on my balcony goes into bloom.  Then the show gets better and is pretty well finished by May or so when the Spanish Lavender plant next to kit (left) starts its show.
 Back east in Ontario I had a Majorcan Rosemary plant which was left with the new owners of the house.  That one spent the summer out on the front porch and started in to bloom in autumn.  I brought it inside in late September where it continued to bloom in the front bay window all winter long until spring arrived.  That one also had blue flowers like this one!  :-)

Have an awesome day and week!  :-)  - Volker
