Hi Friends! It's a gorgeous, sunshiny day here in Nova Scotia. Spring, I think, has FINALLY made her arrival. Thank goodness - I'm just itchin' to get out in the yard and spend time in the garden. I know I've got some time to wait yet, but at least I can start planning which veggies to plant and new flower beds to create! I've recently come across some photos from a few years ago of my flowers and I'm so glad I saved the seeds from my hollyhocks (one of my very favourite flowers) and other plants:

Beautiful card using the brick. I love it. Hey, I used to live in Coldbrook, beside Kentville. After moving to Ontario 20 years ago, I'm making it back to NS, PEI and NB. I manage to buy tickets to go on an Oak Island tour (tickets sold out in 15 minutes). We are so excited. If things work out, we are eloping at the Keltic Lodge in August. (I'm now living on the US border in Sarnia, Ontario, three hours south of Toronto).
