Neither Lottie nor Shirley have seen Ross house and it had been some time since I had last seen it, so we decided to make that our second stop on our Doors Open outing.
This little house was fairly grand in its day and was the first post office in the area.
There were a few people from a group that is interested in the early Selkirk Settlers.
Here are some of my favorite things in this little house.
There was a lovely lilac tree in bloom (my all time favorite flower) so I decided to take a picture of Lottie and Shirley and play with my photo app.
At this point we were hot and hungry. Our big plans for a picnic on the grounds disintegrated in favor of eating in my air conditioned car! This proved a good move as it gave us the strength in see one more venue. 7 Oaks House.
If only I could draw…(wink wink…)
I liked the door bell. You pull down on the lever…
…and the bell on the other side rings.
Just inside the door is this holder with this nice parasol/umbrella with the metallic handle.
Next post will be about how I spent my Sunday for Doors Open.
