1st Annual Summer Solstice Party

Many thanks to Karli for taking photographs at the Solstice garden party and for her blog post.  Have a look at
to read the post and see more photos.  Tahsis Living is the 'go-to' page for everything Tahsis.    

Twenty-four people came out to welcome summer and share some lovingly prepared food.  We had a proper garden blessing, summery tunes, a nice fire kindled with blackberry brambles, and fair weather.

A heartfelt thanks to the awesome volunteers who helped with setup and takedown.   Kudos esp to Rita and Blake who gave the grass a nice trim, cleaned up the chairs, and for donating the fireworks.  What a way to kick off summer!

Second Mason bee house

At a farmers' market in Port Alberni, I found this Mason bee house for a ridiculously good price. Have put it up on the wishing well. Not sure if Mason bees return to their original house to lay eggs or if some will use this one. If not this year, maybe next.
