How does mother nature know that the kids are back to school, the cruise ships are arriving in droves and it’s time to flip the switch and from one day to the next. Suddenly the light has that crisp, clear quality to it and the leaves shimmer and shiver and whisper into our souls that it’s time to start gathering nuts and stop taking our good fortune for granted.
A view that seldom fails to captivate me.
The Public Gardens season is hardly over.
The tours continue on Wednesdays at 10AM until October 2.
During the first week of October (3rd-6th) the Friends of the Common will be celebrating the 250th anniversary in and around the Common, and we’re part of it. For a line up of what’s on where, click here.
Look out for our much anticipated Halifax Public Gardens book (new edition). It is chock full of beautiful photos and very interesting reading regarding the Public Gardens and the era during the time of it’s evolution.
It’ll be available at the Gardens during the Common celebration.
From now until the closing of the Gardens I’ll be posting every second week.
