St. John's harbour

Last Sunday morning, we decided to take a walk in the downtown area of St. John's. 
We started our stroll about on the south side, as I wanted to get some shots of 
the narrows and the city.  

Well, guess what---it started to rain! 

I did manage to get a few pictures of the narrows before we had to take cover in the truck...........

As we started to drive back in towards the city, the rain held a little.

 Such a pretty mix of the colors on the old row houses, with the majestic Basilica as a backdrop.


I wonder what people think as they see the city for the first time, from the deck of one 
of the many cruise ships that come in here every year.

Pickling time again!!

This year was awesome for growing,both in the greenhouse and outside.  
After last summer, I guess it wouldn't take much to impress us.  
On a serious note though, we had a great summer.

Hubby tried several plants in the outside beds.  
He had a great success with the yellow and green beans.....

We LOVE dill beans!!  I posted my recipe and a few photos back in April 2012.

If you like dill, this recipe is awesome.

These beans stay crunchy and are great as a snack, as part of an appetizer tray or a side 
with your favorite meal....YUMMY!!
