Saturday Morning Post

Collectibles to art.......

I set up a few of my mid-century collectibles at a shoppe, 
'Fancy Lucky', in the MacDonald House near the beach
in Lawrencetown.

Sophie inspecting (and wearing I see!) seaweed.

 This 'Species Tulip' (smaller than regular tulips)
 has come back for years now in our garden.

.....view from below.

Catching up with old friends....
Alyce (left) and Paulette (Alyce's daughter) who is an old friend from university days.

Loved this very old townhouse in downtown Halifax yesterday.

A protester in the city.

 'The British are coming, the British are coming'!
Preparation has begun in the Halifax Public Gardens
for Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, 
and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

They will be here on Monday which is a holiday in Canada,
Victoria Day....Queen Victoria is Charles' great great great grandmother.

Everything will sparkle for their visit.

Here is a plaque commemorating Charles' grandfather's, King George VI, 
visit to Halifax in 1939.

This Oak tree was planted by King George back then
and Prince Charles will be planting an Oak tree as well
 in the same vicinity in the gardens.

Passed by this Magnolia tree yesterday in the gardens.

Now here's an Adirondack chair for you....made out of hockey sticks!

One of many development sites in the city.
That is the new library in the background, due to open in September.

While picking up Sophie from doggie daycare yesterday, I noticed this in the garden.

Sophie doesn't like the resident horses at daycare but it appears
that Ron sure does!

I won the bid for this painting at an auction last week.
It is by a French artist Jean Claude Picot.
He is alive and lives in France.
I am waiting for an appraisal 
and what medium was used.
