Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Hi my name is Nora and Welcome to my blog world. This is a nature and birding photo blog about Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I am trying to be a birder and I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

So many of us have been friends of Tina, a nice memorial to her graciousness. Beautiful flower photos; just what I needed to see on this gloomy day!

I love flowers and waiting for spring to see them. Crocuses are already. Regards.

What a lovely tribute Nora. Tina had so many blog friends, myself included, who will miss her everyday. Life can be very harsh!

Denise inVA said...

Thank you for sharing this lovely tribute. Tina would have loved it and I do miss her.

Nora said...

Oh I am sorry, comment moderation is on and some of the comments wait until I click on them to publish. In the past I had some spam comments so I screen them out. I was late in publishing.

Nora said...

Thanks so much.

Nora said...

Yes I needed to see some bright flowers as well.

Nora said...

Thanks so much for your comment. Flowers are just starting here. Sunflowers are from our garden last year.

Nora said...

Hi Cloudia, yes I have followed your blog just as long as I followed Tina I think! Tina was one of the first group of bloggers I met.

Nora said...

Thanks Mac. I guess it is not for us to understand.

Nora said...

Thanks Linda. I think it is a loss to our blogging community.

Nora said...

Yes I do also and will be missing her tender photos of nature.

Nora said...

Thank you. Yes I will come by and make a comment. Thanks so much for following me. My followers gadget did not work for many years, now it started to work again. Apparently they are continuing on with the followers gadget and they are working on it to improve it.

Nora said...

Thanks Ela. I hope to find some more new blogs to follow now that I have a followers gadget.

Nora said...

I will be over there in a while to comment. I really enjoyed having a great look at your blog and will be looking forward to getting to know some new bloggers. I have tried to follow some of the blogs I used to follow before my followers gadget broke and also tried to find some new blogs to replace the loss of our prolific Tina. Although she cannot be replaced.

Nora said...

Yes she published a gift everyday for us. I just thought it would go on forever. I always liked how she could find some small thing in nature and think it was so wonderful and so beautiful, like a leaf or a stick or ice or anything.

Nora said...

I guess we all just go on blogging Denise. We have lost other bloggers along the way but I have trouble getting over this one.

Jenny said...

I just read your post about Tina. I had noticed that she hadn't been posting as I checked her posts regularly, and thought perhaps she had gone on holiday. I was shocked and so very sorry to hear about her accident. I will really miss her wonderful posts. She brightened so many people's lives. So sad.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Great pictures.

Nora said...

Sometimes we never know why a blogger suddenly departs from us. But this time we knew right away and it was a shock. I have found out later that some of my blog friends passed and it was still hard then because I never knew at the time. At least now we all can share our thoughts and it does help.

Nora said...

thanks Ruth, your are lovely also.

Rajesh said...

Beautiful and pretty flowers.

Francisco Manuel Carrajola Oliveira said...

Uma bela fotografia.
Um abra├žo e boa semana.

Breathtaking said...

Such pretty flowers, and a lovely Tribute to Tina, a regular visiter to my blog, and a wonderful photographer. I miss her.

Kate said...

Death often arrives without warning and leaves us as a loss for words; so glad we have images to express our sorry. Very appropriate memorial for Tina.

Nora said...

thanks so much Rajesh! Nice to see you!

Nora said...

thanks so much Francisco!

Nora said...

Thanks Breathtaking! I miss her also and can't believe we won't see her vision of nature anymore. What a loss.

Nora said...

Thanks Kate, yes this week I am scared to read the other blogs or go to them, two bloggers left us unexpectedly and some others want to quit. I was away from blogging for a while and found out when I returned several bloggers had left, many link-ups were gone and a few had passed.

Nick V. said...

Lovely shots, Nora.
