Hello and welcome to the J Q Rose blog!
|Happy birthday, Canada!|
In honor of Canada's 150th birthday this year, I'd like to share photos of our trip to Prince Edward Island, home of Green Gables. I blogged about this magical place when we visited in Summer 2015. Sit back and relax a few moments to enjoy a tour of this lovely place.

We visited Green Gables as one of our stops in PEI on our trip in 2015. Join me as we step through the portal back to the late 1800's at this charming farmstead rich in history and beauty.
So here we go. Grab your bonnets and I'll show you around.
The path from the Green Gables Heritage Place Visitors Center leads you to this enormous barn. Inside are tools and machinery from the 19th century. This would be a fun and educational field trip for kids to learn about farming when there were no air-conditioned tractors or multitasking combines.
The green gables certainly signal you have arrived.
|The furnishings were rich and lovely. Amazing wallpapers and carpeting in every room.|

The scenery in the area is breathtaking. No wonder Lucy Montgomery always referred to it as "home" even after she moved away to Ontario. Her final resting place is the Cavendish Cemetery.

Have you read Anne of Green Gables? I started reading it before we left on our trip and throughout the visit (when I could keep my eyes open long enough to read.) The story is sweetly told. Now considered a children's book, Anne is a great gal to help the reader, young or old, to escape this modern world for awhile.
If you're interested in getting the Anne of Green Gables series , I downloaded this eBook and I'm happy with the formatting. All but two of the series are in the book, plus many other books by L.M. Montgomery, and also the classics, Pride and Prejudice and Call of the Wild.
