I can't believe it's been three weeks since I led a wildflower walk for the Owen Sound Field Naturalists Club along the Bruce Trail on Old Baldy. Sorry, I didn't actually take many wildflower pictures, because I was busy as the leader helping people identify what they were seeing. But if you really want to see wildflower pictures, you can revisit my post of May 2015.
You'll see I figured out how to change my copyright. Never thought about it before actually, but several of you have commented on it, so now we're up to date!

Almost too busy to blog tonight. Made our fifth trip 'south' in 8 days, for doctor's apts. and other things. Then went off to hear an interesting presentation tonight about local Bruce Trail volunteers who headed to Costa Rica last year to help build a hiking trail there. Just got home, watching the sun set as we drove. So here it is, tonight's sunset.
Sorry, have to remember how to change the date on that copyright. This photo was taken tonight!

Walters Falls is just one of about 7 waterfalls I got to earlier in May when we had a week of rain and rivers were running very high. It was like spring melt all over again.

Not much time to blog tonight, been a busy weekend. But here are a few pictures I liked of Georgian Bay in the early evening light two weeks ago. One of those very rare days when there was barely a ripple on the water.

We stopped by one of the Osprey nest platforms near the valley the other day, and there they were. One sitting on the nest, and one standing guard across the road.
We left immediately then, not to disturb them further, our last glimpse one of the Osprey soaring overhead.

We're only half-way through Wednesday's hike, so here's the rest. It was almost all through a beautiful mature Sugar Maple forest, but I did have to slog uphill for quite a distance first.

I'm going to skip over the other several hundred pictures from May for the moment, and bring you up to date so you see what our world is like now. I'm tired of being three weeks behind. We had a lot of rain for a week there, and I went visiting my favourite waterfalls, so a lot of those pictures are waterfall pix. We'll return to those later. Yesterday was a nice hike along the Bruce Trail.
