Yellow Poppies up for grabs on eBay now:) I did this on a stretched canvas which is quite nice, but the shipping is a bit more more expensive:( Shipping from Canada is ridiculously high anyway, sometimes it costs more to ship within the country than outside it!

Wednesday night I took M to a night of fiddling with my friend photofiddler. M has been playing for two years now and I told her to bring her violin because I knew it might get some use:) There are about two dozen people who get together at a community center every Wed and play. Each person takes a turn at the mic with two songs and everyone follows along, accompanied by guitars and two keyboards. It was splendid! First we stopped off at the famous John's Lunch for some haddock tips and chips and John himself came outside to our picnic table and had a a chat with us. Good times.

Tall ships are in full swing. My camera is getting a workout!

Lovely painting. And my word you are right about the shipping! We bought a painting while we were in NS and the shipping home cost more than the painting!
