What’s in Bloom Now? The Bottle Tree of Course!

The bottle tree (aka Stella cherry) is just beginning to bloom. The bottles are used for weights to bend the branches down for easy picking. Underneath spring bulbs bloom delighting the eye with colour and form. Hyacinths, daffodils, silia, tulips….which is your favourite spring bulb?

Enjoy the sights and sounds of a beautiful spring morning alive with life in our front yard.

Our Neighbour the Pileated Woodpecker

The laughing, raucous call of the Pileated Woodpecker greeted me this morning as I stepped outside to the garden. Everything about this beautiful bird seems overstated…size, colour, calls.

Did you know, a Pileated Woodpecker’s wing span can reach 66 to 75 cm (26 to 30 in)?

We feel blessed to have had a pair nesting near us for many years.  –   Rosemary

Low tide at Burntcoat Head

For anyone who hasn’t grown up on the Fundy Shore of Nova Scotia, Burntcoat Head is a must see. Check out this link for what Burntcoat Head Park has to offer. Watch this very dramatic Tide Time-lapse video to see just how impressive the tide can be!
