Rain in Bugsville. Sun in Perth.

We have had so much rain recently!  Tuesday morning, shown here, poured!  You can’t really see the sheets of rain, but they were there!

These lovely trees are in front of the convent on Wright Crescent.  This property is going to be redeveloped, but I wish they could save these trees.  This picture doesn’t do them justice, but they are a rich, deep purple colour.  I think they are some sort of maple.

We arrive in Perth, for a day’s outing.  I figured I should go, since I am half an hour north of Kingston and as of July 2, I won’t be.  I adore Perth!  What a gorgeous town!   Settled in 1816, it’s population is 5840.  They have done a magnificent job of keeping it beautiful, with very pretty garden plantings, and parks along the Tay River, which flows through the center, as does the Tay through Perth in Scotland.

This is an old factory, which is now various offices.  YAK is a youth center, and there were other offices along the side.  The sign above the door, at the far left says The Old Perth Shoe Company, or something like that.

An old graveyard off Craig Road.  I love old graveyards.

The Tay River.  There is a great little park and campground along here–the Last Duel park and campground.  There were a few trailers there and it was a wonderful, peaceful location.  If I had an RV, I wouldn’t mind spending a few days here.

What an inviting porch.  The little sign over the flowers in the middle, says “Grandma and Grandpa’s House”.

The glass structure on the left, along the Tay is where the town has exhibitions and concerts etc.  I think it may be called The Crystal Palace.

As you can see, the sun was out today, and most of tomorrow, according to the forecast, but rain is supposed to start again tomorrow evening.  The dogs are growing webs between their toes!
