Almost home -- the delights of Ottawa

We have had a marvellous trip from Quebec City, and
are so happy to be in Ottawa.  Our room looks out to a
spectacular view of the parliament buildings and the canal.  The
young fellow on the desk upgraded us to a very nice
room (that is always wonderful), and the fellow who
brought our bags to our room, sang a Stan Rogers song
beautifully when he found out we'd come from Nova
Scotia.  He had an exceptional voice, and I was afraid I
was going to cry, but I didn't.  Whew.

I'm posting a painting from 10 years ago of the kind of
flowers my friend Paula leaves in the school house for us
each year.  She is wonderful, and the small bouquets from
her own garden are such a lovely surprise.

Have a loving your friends day.
