Saturday Morning Post

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!


  1. I had a beautiful jade plant once and then one day it just snapped completely off at the base. Guess I should have given it coffee!

    1. Hey,, a little coffee now and again is good for everything I think.

  2. And who has been playing in the sand? Beautiful spring glory everywhere. Down here, snow has fallen to the north and far south of us, a little sleet fell at our place last night, not quite snow, not hail.... but very cold.

    1. Actually,, Jean, it was made by a family with one small child that was just ahead of us on the beach.
      We had two very warm days and now we are back to a typical 13C daily for a while.....which is OK by me.
      And as you head towards winter with sleet we had our first small flock of Cedar Waxwings drop by our blooming cherry tree for a snack. We hadn't seen these in years.

  3. Wow, gorgeous shots, Jim! You just can't beat this time of year. Our weather is the same here. Up and down. Spring and no spring. You don't know what to expect from day to day!

  4. Thanks Martha. I am betting you can't wait to get out there and start clicking away once again!
    Now get back to slacker!! lol

  5. Gorgeous photos, Jim! I'm impressed with your squirrel! Those rascals are so hard to catch! Love the Cartier poster ~ so cool!


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
