There is something different about taking a walk in a garden that I’m not sure I can explain.  I’ll try, you wake up, the sky is still gray, and you make a cup of coffee and look out the window again and it is a little brighter.  You grab the door knob being ever so quiet as to not wake anyone.  Stepping outside I see magnified bits of sun strongest through the trees warming my feet and making shadows here and there.  You take that walkabout with coffee in hand and camera in the other.

I never head out to the garden to capture anything with my camera I just figure it would be nice to see something that sort of makes you say, “oh, wow”.

It always amazes me that I find a photo to capture in the garden.  Every time I return to the garden it gives me a new gift.

Not near ready to open yet are my lilies

Let me see if I can get a little closer

Now we have had rain off and on for some time now, and I love to see rain drops dance around the garden


Amazing how this leaf will hold water drops


It is shaping up to another rain day in PEI.  You never know the sun might just come out and surprise us all.  I’m fortunate to live close to my garden and I’m able to take a walk about whenever I wish.  Yesterday driving down Mt. Edward Rd. I see a number of gardeners with wagons and wheelbarrows in a community garden.  My thoughts wonder to  the amount of work, time and effort that goes into a garden. I see a man leaning on the end of a rake taking a short break while his wife is bent over in the garden perhaps pulling weeds, while two others stand by and chat.  I think I’d like to  visit their garden.

We visited Montague area and found a unique find at the

Garden of the Gulf Museum

This is a 3-position high chair

It actually is a high chair, a rocking chair and a 3/4 chair like a walker

I don’t think as a kid we ever sat in one, but have a look no straps, harnesses

or buckles to hold a child in and everyone was fine back then, this was even

a walker in another position.  Ok, way cool I so wish I had one of these when the kids were small.  Even now what a show piece.

Visit the Garden of the Gulf Museum for other interesting facts, history, finds and more.
