Today is a beautiful day in my corner. You can see all the way across the 18 miles of the Straits of Juan de Fuca to Victoria and my mind remembers the beauty that awaits over there. Last June I visited and got to see Buchart Gardens in full glory. The roses in full bloom and as this photo of the Sunken Garden shows around every bend there was beauty to be had. I hope to ride the ferry over in about two weeks and take in this beauty again. I'm a sucker for roses in full bloom!
