Jellyfish - Vancouver Aquarium, Canada

Visited Vancouver Canada and decided to go into their aquarium.  I had not been in an aquarium before.  This one was amazing!  I fell in love with all the jellyfish they had!  If you are in Vancouver I would highly recommend it if you are interested in jellyfish.  Enjoy the video.

Tour of My Flower Garden - First Year - Fall of 2019

This year we created a new flower bed and added many new plants in other beds.  I wanted to document the first year of my garden.  I didn't think of this until mid September, but better late than never.  The bed in the thumbnail is in full sun.  I added plants that attract pollinators and butterflies - might even consider making it a Monarch waystation one day. I also planted some daffodils in this bed for an early spring show.  I tried planting some seeds (cosmos, zinnias, and rose campion) but I planted them when it was too hot out (late July).  Shockingly I got a few cosmos.  In late fall I got one zinnia and much later some rose campion actually showed up. 

I hope to continue to document the changes in my garden over the coming seasons including revamping another bed (not shown in the video) to attract hummingbirds.
