Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore in Spring







When Katy Morris
visits
Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore,
she finds inspiration for her delicately rendered watercolours. Katy, who is from Calgary, likes to visit in the late spring and early summer when the coastal landscape spills colour everywhere.

Hundreds of shades of green ranging from the darkest black spruce to the bright green of new maple leaves provide a lush backdrop to the dazzling yellows of buttercups and daisies. And along the roadside, the pinks, blues and lavenders of lilacs, wood violets and lupins grow in wild profusion.

Red & Blue Poppies
Katy Morris renders her watercolours with a sensitive touch that allows you to experience Nova Scotia in the spring.
