Oh 1977! I had hair back then. And when I watched this video
by The Eagles, I had a glimpse of what I looked like back then......
the drummer/singer of this piece stole my hair!! lol

Enjoy this classic everyone and have a wonderful Sunday.

It is the 'Victoria Day' weekend here in Canada.
We Canadians honour Queen Victoria for her
contributions to society during her long reign
by recognizing the Monday before May 25th as a holiday.

This piece is from the ITV series, 'Victoria'.
It is very well done and educational.
I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

Hello summer!!!

It is very typical here in Nova Scotia to not have a 'spring' at all.
One day it can be 3C and the next 33C.


Everything is 'greening up' very quickly....everywhere.


Our Jade plant is growing like gang-busters....must be the coffee  I feed it!


Glorious day at the beach yesterday morning....Ron and Sophie.


Remains of an old British fort at the park....


Looking west on the beach yesterday......


The squirrels are really quite tame at the park.


 Looking east on the beach.....


Sunset on the 'hill' Thursday evening.....


Our 'Star Magnolia' full bloom......the insects are loving it!


It was a true coincidence that I put this framed 'Jacques Cartier
Erects the Cross' print in the shop on the 375th anniversary
of his 'founding' of Quebec.


Same sunset....different angle


The backs of blossoms can be just as interesting......Star Magnolia


Have a great weekend everyone!

This song was probably my mother's favourite.
And this one by Patti Page was probably the one she heard most
back in the early 50's.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day everyone.
