The years of history come alive here. Wars in Europe directly affected this land that changed hands numerous times over 400 years of European habitation.
What we saw today: remnants of French and British military occupation - a most lovely historical garden that had me wanting to move here just to work in it - a reconstruction of the first settlement in 1604 complete with interpreters wearing period costume.
Wild winds blew from a cloudy sky. No rain. In the garden the wind tossed the branches of oaks and maples. Sibilant whispers of leaves. Wafts of lilacs, purple, white, deep violet. Rhododendrons. I didn't want to leave.
