Afraid we only have leaves to go by - which are so pretty that I'd like to which plant they belong.

How about one of the Sanguisorba? I'm pretty sure you have those native in Nova Scotia, since almost everything else you posted today is growing in my yard. They're all native here, also.

I think mytime is right; it looks like Sanguisorba canadensis, Canada burnet.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sanguisorba canadensis, Canada burnet

Awesome, mytime and susanc!

Would you believe it - I actually tried to grow it here a long time ago - the people at the nursery said it would survive Chicago's unpredictable weather (thanks to climate change) - of course it promptly died within that season.
I have since changed my philosophy - I will simply enjoy looking at the plants wherever they grow and take pics for future enjoyment. I don't need to grow them in my yard or own them in any way. I must say that has made me much happier :-)

Shyamala, I grow a lot of plants, and I too, have the same feeling. I don't have to own them to enjoy them. Some plants I'd rather not have, for one reason or another, but I still enjoy them for their good points someplace else.
