Saturday Morning Post


This past week in photos:


Bird house in garden waiting for spring 'check-in'.


Garden shed...


Ron 'on location' in the beach dune/grass.


An evening with Mary at 'Country Critter Sitters' (Sophie's day care)


Coco, the resident 'grouch'! But he is the cutest little guy with a mind of his own.


Ron being mobbed by Owen, Toledo, and Henry.


An Amaryllis in full bloom at Mary's. (inside of course)


'Playing' with the Orchid at Mary's.


Spectacular Orchid watched us! lol


Sophie, Owen (Mary's English Setter puppy) and Ron at sunset.


Looking further along the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia at Mary's.


Sunset in part of Mary's garden.


Golden shrubs at sunset....


Waxing Gibbous Moon, 60% of  full on Wednesday evening.


Facing south-easterly at sunset.


Reflection from the outside.....


Orchid from the back (outside).


A very good game of Scrabble......won by Mary! 
Either she or Ron usually wins. One of these days.....


Listened to this CD while playing Scrabble, really entertaining!
OK all you cat lovers, a 'must' if you haven't already!


Sophie and I joined sister Mim and Maggie at Fleming Park in Halifax on Thursday.


Mim and her dog Maggie at the shore of the Northwest Arm.

  1. Wonderful photos, Jim! What a great collection. I laughed out loud where you wrote "Coco, the resident 'grouch'" Seems like every neighbourhood (species) has one, doesn't it? Still, that is a very sweet-looking dog.

    Sophie's day care looks like an amazing place with lots of room to run and play in. You guys really take care of her.

    I'll have to check out that cat CD. I am curious now!

    1. Morning Martha! Thanks, it was a good week for photo opportunities.

      Coco is a sweetheart and really stands his ground as so many dogs come and go. He just does what HE wants to do whenever he wants.

      Sophie 'grew up' there at CCS....she HAD to! She loves to visit and see Mary and I think Sophie really misses Cathy who used to spoil her with treats!! (Cathy passed away about a year and a half ago).
      Have a great weekend and do check out that CD...I think you'd love it. May be on You tube too.

  2. Great photos! I am the world's worst Scrabble player -- anyone can beat me! Yet I'm a whiz at crosswords -- go figure.

  3. Good Morning, Jim,
    Lovely shots there at Mary's, she has a beautiful spot there. I can see why the dogs love it there.
    Scrabble, I haven't played in ages, I think I would be a low scorer anymore.
    Nice to see Mim and Maggie again.
    You had a good week.

    1. Hello Sharon! Not only the dogs love it there!! Mary has a view to die for!!
      I like to play Scrabble even though I never win.
      I spent the whole afternoon with Mim after the walk going from shop to shop just browsing.
      The week was a busy one. Good for a change.

  6. What great photos. I love to play Scrabble with my daughter, The Hurricane. we are so evenly matched that we tend to take turns winning, and it's usually by a point or two.

    Love,
    Janie

  8. Beautiful to spend the Saturday with you and your family/friends and the pets in the great outdoors. I have to admit to having a beautiful day here but succumbing to baseball on t.v today.

    1. LOL! Hey Jen I understand completely about baseball.....even though I haven't watched one game yet!! But I like watching it, especially the Red Sox!! Now don't ask why not the Blue Jays!!! Boston is a lot closer in so many ways to us in N.S. than Ontario!!

  10. Hi Jim! I thoroughly enjoy looking back at your week through your photos! What a beautiful corner of our world Mary has landed in with its magnificent ocean views. I might give Ron a run for his money at Scrabble! Have a good one! Oh yeah, I liked how you were playing with the orchids!

      Mary does have a wonderful spot there in Seaforth!! She and her sister just 'happened' upon it about 15 years ago.

      OK, the bets are on missy!!
