FIRST DAY of LOBSTER SEASON This was early this morning in south west NOVA SCOTIA e.g.. . .DIGBY NECK. Thank you cousin Gary Wilson for this beautiful shot taken as the boats left the wharf in the cove!Cold and wet time of year to be heading out for the first day claiming your spot loaded with traps. Bravo to you all!I hope its a great season and a decent price is in store for your efforts!
This cooler weather brings out all the winter preparations around our home. . . . and here I share a couple of Kitchen scenes . . ..
Maud Lewis Kitchen and her wood stove
with a very Nova Scotia style rug in front.
My Kitchen stove in Quebec with my great grandmothers rug in front.It was hooked in Nova Scotia about 24 miles from Maud's House outside Digby. . .but most likely 50 years before Maud lived in her little house.
I love this little autumn coloured farm scene by Mattie Lou O'Kelly . . . .seen somewhere on the internet . . .Love the story it tells and the simplicity.I am all about simple things these days and although the scene is busy the overall feeling is unpretentious and simple things of life.Yellow ,white, pink and turquoise trees . . . .and fields . . .thank you Mattie . . . . .
