Dear Lynne,
It was kind of Sue to tell how to create the slide show!
I enjoyed doing this and maybe as I learn I will do even better ones.
I liked the way one day could be done in one minute.
Fun!
I have a feeling I will want to do a few of these.

Dear Sue,
Thank you so much for leading the way. I was so pleased at how easy this was. Hausefrau is my i.t. lady and I did not have to call her for tec support.
You are computer savvy so I will see what "next" you come up with.
Thanks again for showing the way to slide shows. They are fun to do!

Dear Deb,
We did have fun..
I am thinking I will do "Slideshow Fridays" on Corner. I had so much fun doing this one that I am trying think of excuses to do many more.

Dear Sprite,

Sherry,

BRAVO! I'm so impressed with this. You did a wonderful job. The music and views are perfect!

I think slide show Friday's at Q's Corner will be a hit.

You need to teach me how to do that one day. I'll take a whole day off from work to learn how.

Hugs,
Mary

Several years ago we visited Victoria and went to Buchart Gardens. I have such fond memories of that holiday.

Q said...

Dear Mary,
These are so easy to do.
I would love to show you how. You do not need a whole day to learn, but we could hang on the phone and giggle and laugh.
As you know I have taken to Slide Show Fridays. I think about what I will do all week!

Dear Cammyk,
We really had a wonderful time.
I liked the wild areas the best.
The gardens were so crowed and sterile...they have these bug traps all over so no bugs. I like bugs!!!
Victoria is abeautiful city.

I just found this video of Butchard GArdens. I have been there a couple of times. It is an amazing place.

This is where I first saw a hedge with a hole cut into it so you could peek at the ocean and beach beyond. Did you happen upon this area?

I have always wanted to do this in my garden. I have a pitiful start.It is actually just a nod to this intersting garden phenom. It will never look like the hedge at Butchard.

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
We visited two gardens this day. One was near the bed and breakfast we stayed in the other Butchard. Butchard was huge and very crowded. I only saw two butterflies the entire time I was there. On further investigation I saw they had insect traps set up in the trees. I found Butchard to be very pretty but missed the birds and the bugs! The gardens on the castle grounds were also very beautiful with lots of bugs and birds! I enjoyed the Hummingbirds and the Peacocks.
I did not see the hedge with the hole cut in to view the ocean. Grat idea.
This was my first slide show. Glad you enjoyed it.
Our trip was fun!
