Some highlights from a spring weekend spent on the trails in South Ottawa: a rainy walk at Richmond Conservation Area, and a sunny jaunt at Beryl Gaffney Park. Two local spots that we love to explore, through every season, to see what we can see.
Raindrops and reflections transforms the pond surface into colliding concentric circles.
All that rain: cloudy skies, muddy trails, and Indian pipes appearing like pale ghosts haunting the forest floor.
If we all had such beautiful places to wait out the rain we might not complain so much when the sky starts to darken.
not to be confused with the Mists of Avalon (a book waiting to be read on my bedside table).
Tulip, after the rain, black and white.
