Take time to visit the small village shops. There are no chains or big box stores but instead an amazing array of independent artist galleries and speciality shops. While I personally wouldn't add quite so many novelty figures in my garden I loved the bright colors in this sidewalk display. After seeing this cheerful garden I think I play it a little too safe in my own pastel colored garden!
You can think about one of your favorite childhood books, Anne of Green Gables, and imagine yourself on Prince Edward Island, walking along Anne's beloved Lilac Lane!
Since I missed most of my own lilacs blooming while on my May vacation, I was delighted to discover them still in bloom up north.

|My camera doesn't take great night photos, but here is a beautiful picture of the Milky Way over Cave Point near where we were camping. It really is this beautiful.|

And last, but certainly not least, you spend time with those you love more than life itself. Seize the day and cherish the moments!
It's a Wonderful World
I see trees of green........ red roses too
I see em bloom..... for me and for you
And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue..... clouds of white
Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.
The colors of a rainbow.....so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
They're really sayin......i love you.
I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
They'll learn much more.....than I'll never know
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world
