This is the funniest post coming out of poplar road, which is written by our daughter Anita. She started this blog in the fall of 2004 when she and her partner moved to the interior of BC, far from family and friends. Anita says it is a venue for her to share their new life in a rural community and an opportunity to write creatively in a relaxed way. She combines lots of beautiful photos with her descriptions of their renovation adventures, the definite and changing seasons, the surrounding countryside, and the neighbour’s darling llamas, goats and their babies.
Because her intended audience consists of family and friends, Anita has been shy to let me tell strangers/my readers about her blog but now, with her approval, I’m proud to introduce you to poplar road – ta da! Please visit and say hello! Anita is a wonderful writer with a degree in creative writing from the University of Victoria.
