Saturday Morning Post


This week had seven days.......


'Coast is clear Jim, come on up!'


Sophie LOVES to pose.....


Nova Scotia's official flower, the Mayflower.


He's the 'King Of the Castle'....


Through the gazebo.


Sophie waiting patiently (sort of) for Dad to return from Bocci ball.


Now THAT was a good shake Soph!!


This mud puddle was 'two tone' and I didn't know why.


Old barn through the trees.


Ron worked here back in 1973-74...the Wolfville Post Office.


Window with flag of British Columbia.


Glass of water.....


Looking for eagles here on Friday......no luck.


Cyclist on country road.


And 'Why did the pheasant cross the road?'

    1. Hi Joanne. Glad you liked my mish-mash!! That gazebo is located in Point Pleasant Park in Halifax.....if you take a sharp left at that lighthouse out there and go down the shore about 25 kms, you would reach our place.
      I was stalking Sophie yesterday when we were at the canal to get that shaking shot.....lots of fun!!

  2. I love this, Jim, all of it! But that high-stepping pheasant takes the prize.

    1. There are so many pheasants around this time of year and this fellow was going about his business yesterday along this country road in the valley.
      Have a great day Inger.

  3. LOVE the action shot of Sophie shaking and also the two-tone mud puddle!

    When I was a kid in elementary school, we had to memorize all the provincial flags and flowers. Just for kicks a couple of weeks ago, I tried to remember all the provincial flowers to see if I could still do it after *cough* 45 years. I only missed three -- NWT, NS and NB! I guessed bluebells or something for Nova Scotia (on the basis of the old folk song "Bluebells of Scotland"), but no. So it's nice to see a photo of mayflowers and see what they look like -- thanks!

    2. Every time Sophie came up to the path from the canal I was there to 'greet' her with the camera!! I am thankful for the zoom lens so I could stand back from the spray!!
      I don't think I know any of the provincial flowers, Debra!! Now I will have to take a look round google......
