Saturday Morning Post

Here we are in June!

These tulips were from Ron's mother's garden.
We dug them up in 1998 and planted them here.
They have bloomed every year.

When I retired from teaching I gave myself a gift
of 100 French red tulips.
They came up the first year only.
Tulips aren't like what they were.

My favourite tree along the Salt Marsh Trail.....

Following the leader along the Atlantic View Trail.....

An aerial view of the shop....

Purchased this painting this week without knowing the artist.
I am searching but with not too much success.
I was drawn into those eyes.

Ron and Sophie.......

A 'Red-Winged Black Bird'......

We don't have mountains in our part of Nova Scotia
but we do have hills.
This is Hawkins Hill along the Atlantic trail.
The view from up there is quite nice.

A view along the trail of which I never tire.....

On our way up Hawkins Hill at the eastern end of the beach.....

My handsome husband.....

A lot of cyclists 'do the loop' on this stretch of the Eastern Shore 
starting this time of year and into the fall.

Our 'Teddy Bear' rhododendron is the first of our rhodos to bloom.

    1. It's a beautiful time of year, Mitchell.

  2. Spring flowers, but still some almost winter gear there on one very cool guy. Fantastic views everywhere you look.

    1. We've had a cooler than usual May and early June here in the fact in Canada this spring. We always have extra 'gear' in the car just in case.

  3. you live in such a gorgeous area. and you have a gorgeous husband too!

    1. Yes and yes! lol
      Thanks, Joyce.

  4. Yes, he certainly is a handsome devil :) Wonderful shots, Jim. It's hard to believe it's already the month of June!

  5. I can't believe it's June, but here it is. All too soon the days will start getting shorter! :( You do live in a gorgeous area. Are you now levitating??? I loved the aerial shot of your shop, and that taller red suitcase looks exactly like one of the ones my father gave me for my high school graduation ~ because he knew I wanted to travel the world! Too bad about your red French tulips ~ maybe you had the misfortune of a bad bunch. Wishing you and your handsome husband a great weekend!

  6. Hey Jim, we just went and saw the movie "Maudie" last night. Most excellent! Saw it was filmed in Newfoundland though, not in Nova Scotia. But Newfoundland put a bunch of money into the film so that's what they got in return, I guess!

    1. Well, our liberal gov't cut funding to the film industry a few years ago.....a lot of people moved out of NS and to BC/Ontario and everywhere in-between. Very shot-sighted to say the least on the gov't part!
      And bravo to Newfoundland to pick up this film. Maud would not be happy I suspect.

  7. Lovely start for the month of June Jim lovely selection of photo's your store looks charming, those eyes on the painting are hard to resist a good score. Hope next week is as wonderful as this week looks like it has been.


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