Lovely Scene, Lovely News


Ah, we need a bit of a break from the furry bears, don’t you think? Yes, we do! Here is a lovely photo to cheer your day! I captured this vignette of wild roses and a picket fence when we visited Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. The lone flower, nodding over the fence railing, was begging for my camera’s attention. I adore cottage scenes like this! I processed the image with a high dynamic range (HDR) filter, added some “glow”, and toned down the saturation. Viola!


So what is the lovely news, you ask? My sweet baboo visited the doctor yesterday for a 6-week checkup. The verdict? Hubby is doing splendidly with his new bionic hip! He no longer needs to use the cane and does not require any outpatient therapy. And, he was also delighted to hear that he can now drive again, so he’s not tethered to my weekend chauffeuring services. He will continue with his at-home exercises and have another follow-up doctor's visit in three months. He appreciates all your inquiries and good wishes!

  2. The best kind of news!

    Peggy's Cove is a beautiful spot with not much going on besides little scenes such as you've shared and the rocks and the ocean.
