Miss Jekyll Love-in-a-mist flowers.
The hydrangeas have not fully bloomed but I thought I would take photos to mark the first day of summer (yesterday). Click here to see the hydrangea photos I look last year.
Taken with Canon EOS 600D. The photos are not edited.
This is from my Instagram story. The lyrics are from the song Ref:rain by Aimer.
The original photo.
I took photos of a purple rose back in June 2016. I haven’t seen another purple rose since then. I thought that some of you guys might like this. 🙂 No edit.

The sky picture was taken right outside where I live. I have two pots of these flowers. If anyone knows the flower name, please let me know. I believe we planted them (I have so many plants at home, it’s hard to keep track…).
August 2019 – Richmond Sunflower Festival
February 2020 – Bowen Island trip
I went to Bowen Island for a couple of days with two friends. It’s really close to Vancouver.
I felt stressed these past weeks and wanted a break from city life. Prior to the trip, I had not been on an overnight trip in several years and did not hike in a really long time. I am a homebody but it was relaxing and refreshing to be in nature. I felt peaceful.
I think that when you’re on the island, you are on an “island timezone.” What I mean by this is that there’s no rush and there’s not much need to check your phone. I wonder why I check my phone a lot more in the city- perhaps because a lot of people have the ‘need to be productive’ mindset?

I would say that the highlight of the trip was stargazing. There is only one street light on the island. I had never seen so many stars before. They looked so big and I could see them clearly.
The lighthouse and volcanic rocks.
I got my friends to watch The Untamed with me after our hikes. They became really invested in it, which was great. Hehehe.
Here are my favourite posts of 2019. I’m thinking of writing a post for each year but we shall see.
Deleting my Twitter account was a huge change for me. I do miss my friends but it was not a good place for me (due to reasons outlined in the post).
I had fun writing episodic mini reviews.
These are the first shots I took with my DSLR. I love hydrangeas.
My friends and I went to a sunflower festival and we had fun taking pictures. I like the wildflower photos the most.
I borrowed a cosplay from a fellow Anime Club exec. These photos are from a cos test the day before Clubs day at the university.
This was my first time participating in Inktober. It pushed me to draw a lot.
A lot of you guys liked my photos of the steam clock in Vancouver. Some of you thought it was a screenshot from an anime, which I thought was quite amusing.
I went to a lake with pretty lights.
Autumn at Nitobe Memorial Garden
I did a touristy thing and took photos at Gastown, Vancouver. The street lamps look cool too. It’s a magical place.
