You lookin’ at me?

American Tree Sparrow feeding on Brown-eyed Susan seeds.

If you can, plant a bird-friendly garden, and don’t prune back the seedheads until spring – your feathered friends will much appreciate it on these cold winter days!

Ice Storm 2

From the realm of the White Witch of Narnia, I bring you ice-covered Queen Anne’s Lace: devastatingly beautiful, and heart-breakingly fragile.

Alien monks

These monkshoods are slowly morphing into blooms, showing tinges of the purple flowers they will become.

In the meantime, they are looking a bit too much like aliens for my liking…

Indian Pipe

All that rain: cloudy skies, muddy trails, and Indian pipes appearing like pale ghosts haunting the forest floor.

Bath time

Sunset bath on top of an Echinacea – looks so peaceful – if I could, I would.

Lamb’s Ears*

The bees like to drink from the flowers, and I like to pet the leaves.

Win-win situation, I say.

Bon Echo Provincial Park

First camping weekend of the summer – woot! woot!

Just over 2 hours away, a picturesque spot with everything you can ask for: canoeing, fishing, swimming and and hiking; campfires, card games, wine out of plastic cups, too many chips; raccoons, Blackburnian warblers, fireflies and a supermoon, a quick rainshower, some glorious sunshine, and great friends.

Cheers to summer – looking forward to many more trips into the wilderness!

Hunkering down

If we all had such beautiful places to wait out the rain we might not complain so much when the sky starts to darken.
