Winds delayed our arrival in Halifax but we had our stay extended to compensate. I have been here many times and today decided to visit the Halifax Public Gardens to see a tropical agave tree that had grown out of its greenhouse and had made the news in my local newspaper. It is about 40 years old and at some point will flower and then die. To me it looked Iike maybe it had already done so. However there were many other plants in bloom. I also went to see the new public library which has won architectural awards and is said to be one of the most beautiful libraries in the world. It is quite impressive. I then visited the Nova Scotia Art Gallery. Those who have seen the movie Maudie will know the story of the folk painter Maud Lewis. The gallery has a large exhibit of her paintings including her painted house. It is almost doll sized. Lastly I visited the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic which has an informative exhibit about the Titanic.
