2. The day after we arrived back on the Island, (mid-May and still a few snowbanks – can you believe it?) Rob, Dorothy and Oscar came to visit. They just purchased a lovely century home and are staying with us while the renovations are being completed.

It’s been such fun to wake up in the morning to a sweet little voice calling out, “Dada, Mama, Rara” (Sarah) and an occasional “Nana”. He doesn’t say Grampie yet, but he has lots of kisses to make up for it 🙂

Walks, visits to our neighbour’s new goat and baby chicks, stories, music and rides in his new car. Who’s having more fun with the new car, Oscar or Grampie?

3. A week after our return from Cuba, our church hosted the 9th annual Revival in Belfast PEI conference with Robin Mark and Paul and Priscilla Reid from Belfast Northern, Ireland.The teaching and worship were awesome! Over 600 people coming from everywhere – the church was packed. We’re already looking forward to next year.

4. It’s amazing the changes that happen in a couple of weeks. From bare twigs to blossoms –flowering-crab-2015
from lingering snowbanks to lush green meadows.trail

The daffodils are finished now and the tulips are almost done.Daffodils-tulips-2015
The sweet-scented lilacs are out now and the lupins are on the way.

  1. Hi Kathy, I’m just catching up, but I had to tell you that my lupines came up again this year just gorgeously. I think of you every spring when I see them. I bought the packet of lupines at Ann of Green Gables gift shop…and so glad that I have a touch of PEI every year. I hope the rest of your summer is just delightful.

  2. Your pictures are absolutely stunning – the blossoms and bird header – Wow! What a lovely warm get away for you – the images speak for themselves. Right now we are camping all around the Gaspe and the lilacs are blooming. The parks are barely open but it’s so beautiful and lush all around. I love the picture of your gardener – my garden will need major tending once we get back home.

    A wonderful month for you! I’m so glad you had a chance to soak up some sun in Cuba – you certainly deserved it after all that winter.
    Your pictures are all lovely – taken with love and joy, I can tell but my favourite is the one of Roger in his “Happy Place”. It is a tender and loving portrait of your soulmate.
