Northern Inspiration

Jon and I took a little trip up North to his home town, Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was a great visit and we are so glad Jon was able to renew his work Visa again. While we were there the weather was surprisingly nice, I have been in Halifax in April before when there was still snow on the ground….but this time, sunny and warm T-shirt weather! So…just wanted to share some photos I took for design inspiration. I love the little flowers sprouting up through the old leaves, not a common sight where I grew up!

Oh and the lichen…I am really likin’ the lichen! love the color…

Some flowers blooming at Jon’s Mom’s farmhouse, so lovely.

  1. So happy to see photos of our spring flowers and lichen published for perpetuity! You should see the blossoms popping out now … we’d love to have you (and your camera) visit anytime! Actually, I think the Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival held at the end of May would be a really good excuse for you to visit Nova Scotia once again!!!
