Hello! And welcome to one of my first posts with ACTUAL PICTURES. That’s right, Charlotte’s got a camera, and the world beware. This is just a selection of the pictures I took in Canada at Buchart Gardens, but we spent most of our time in Victoria. I took fewer pictures there, just because I wasn’t as inspired.

During my visit, I discovered the beautiful, wonderful Blue Poppy, and it’s my new favorite flower. I’m thinking of using it on future marketing material as my symbol if I can find a graphic of it that I like I might even find a way to use this image, if I’m super-careful.

I’ve found some really cool settings on my new camera, and I’m excited to share my trip to the UK with you guys not only in words, but IN PHOTOS. Are you excited? I’m excited.

I’ve already started to write some of those daily blog posts, on paper because my internet has been iffy and I don’t want to deal with typing them until I finish this post. But I should have the first one up rather soon, i should think. I hope you enjoy them!

I’ll also be posting at some point the third installment of Natalie Cannon’s writing stuffs from the conference she went to, so if that’s something you’re interested in, it just needs editing.
