Saturday Morning Post


Loving July in Nova Scotia......


Cormorants love to dry off on the sandbar
 in the middle of the river at low tide.


Sophie loves the river as well where it meets the ocean.


Beam me up, Scottie!


I really like this part of the Atlantic Trail.


Now to Halifax's Northwest  Arm.....full of summertime sailing.


A 'wild' white Rugosa Rosa with occupant.


Sailing up the 'Arm'.


It was interesting to watch the interaction
between these two at Point Pleasant Park .


Walking through the wooded PP Park in Halifax
we came across these very large and bright mushrooms.


This is a blossom from one of our rose bushes
called Rosa Rubrifolia.


Our Kousa Dogwood is really showing off its blossoms this year.


And this Oriental Poppy made an appearance this week.

    1. I think you have captured it, Ron. Your photos and way you approach life go hand in hand with the Fibonacci Sequence.

  8. It must be so nice to have both the ocean and a river. Living here, I miss the ocean, lakes, and rivers more than anything else.

    1. It is, Inger, and we certainly don't take any of this for granted. I can't imagine though living too far from the ocean. It is such a part of my being here.
      I remember a post of yours when you spoke and showed photos of your family's time in the archipelago in Sweden. It was such a part of your life in your formative years wasn't it.

  11. I laughed at Beam me up, Scottie, too, Jim! However the colorful mushrooms gave me a bit of a rush ~ I don't think they are the deadly Amanita Muscaria, but they certainly reminded me of them. I hope you don't forage for mushrooms! Your garden must be gorgeous right now! July in Nova Scotia is glorious!

    1. We never touch any mushroom, let alone eat any, that we see. Just don't know enough about them. I'll stick with the supermarket ones.
      Our garden IS at its peak now......and yes, it is gorgeous. Makes all the past work we did worth while. this is what we were hoping for 25 years ago!!
      Hope this finds you both well, Louise.

  12. Judging by your photos Jim looks like you had a wonderful week I especially love the lady bug one.
    Here's hoping next week will be just as good.
    Cheers from Vancouver Island.
