A walk in the park and the letter V

Sam and I have been going for morning walks to Harold Provincial Park with my friend Shelley, who lives next door. The park is only a 5 minute drive away. It’s such a beautiful time of the year…I thought I would share a bit with you today.  🙂



Does anyone know what kind of tree this is? We think maybe a Tamarack?

And for the A-Z in April Blogging Challenge:

VVirabhadrasana -better know as Warrior pose – comes in handy-dandy pack of three varieties. The warrior poses are what a lot of people think of when they hear the word “yoga.” At least one virabhadrasana is included in just about every yoga class. 🙂



warrior I







warrior II



warrior III





I don’t know why they are numbered I, II and III instead of each being given it’s own name.  I guess it’s one of the great mysteries of the universe.

Either that or I’m too lazy to go find out.


  1. What an absolutely beautiful place. Thanks for sharing the photos. I don’t know if that’s a Tamarack tree or not. It doesn’t look like what I remember in Nevada, but maybe that was a different kind of tree. I thought the pinecones were a little rounder, but that could be the angle of the photo.

  2. Enjoying your blog, Nita. Really enjoying the links you have provided for the yoga poses. Also like your sewing posts. I am experimenting with clothing and it has been a learning experience.

    The tree in Herald park is a larch. I love their soft needle clumps. Probably a western larch – depends if the tree is wild or planted. We are at the Northern range for wild western larch. Tamarack in the Yukon are likely the same species that you find east of the Rockies. (Professional Forester husband) We love the western larch and have planted some on our property.

    I chuckled when I saw that your Harold Park live link leads to Herald Park (the proper name for the park). Don’t know how that works. LOL I always remember the name by thinking of Hark the Herald angels sing and the family the park is named after.
