Sunday Selfies : Growing with Wilhelmina and LP and some lilies from our garden.












We are joining our good friends at, The cat on my head , for their always fun Sunday Selfies! This week we thought it might interest you to see just how much Wilhelmina has grown since we first got her.








Collecting her at the breeder's. She weighed a mere eight pounds!










Enjoying our chilly, rainy,  Vancouver winter walks.









On a jetty walk as the sun begins to shine more often.







Spring is in the air!








Wilhelmina today, at seven months of age, weighs fifty pounds! She stands twenty-four inches high at the withers. What a wonderful and joyful girl  who reminds us to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us each and every day. It is as though she prompts us to insist that the beauty and love we discover everywhere, will always triumph over the increasing ugliness we are seeing in the world.









The lilies in our garden are now in full bloom! Their scent is intoxicating!

























Have a Sunny Sunday!
Don't forget to HOP!  It's a wonderful way to visit old and new friends alike.
See you soon.

  17. I had no idea she was so big! It's hard to get a sense of size from photos, I know. In my head, she was still a little thing!
