I'm falling way behind on posting my photos, such as they are, so here's a snapshot of what we've been up to recently. I'll come back to some of these and fill you in on more details. Meanwhile, we're enjoying perfect days here, four days of sunshine and blue skies, warm enough but not too hot; it can stay like this until September for me, and I'm sure for many of you.
This is a beautiful serviceberry beside one of the neighbour's houses, in full bloom. You don't often see these as ornamental trees, but judging by this one, they should be more popular!
We've had a lot of beautiful skies too, though this was two weeks ago.
Last weekend, on a beautiful day when you just couldn't stay inside, we headed down to Durham to see McGowan Falls, one of only two among the big 8 waterfalls I can still get close to. Here the Rocky Saugeen River plunges over the mill dam and a series of rock ledges, leading to some nice picture opportunities like these.
The Crab Apples are in bloom at the moment, with their beautiful pink blossoms, a popular tree in our towns.
And downtown on our main street there are a few like this, ornamental pear trees I think.
Here in the neighbourhood the Ash tree leaves are finally coming out. I don't know how they manage with only 2+ months of photosynthesis time, for they are the last trees to have leaves in the spring and the first to lose them in the fall.
A distant apple orchard across the orchard that I never noticed until they were in bloom.
And of course there was our celebration this week to open the new 'Stew Hilts Side Trail' of the Bruce Trail. Here's the whole crowd.
Yesterday after physio we took time to visit Harrison Park in Owen Sound and went for a long walk down one of the trails, conveniently paved for bikes - but it works well for wheelchairs too. Then we had a delicious lunch in the park restaurant where a flock of Canada Geese hangs from the ceiling.
Finally the distant view out our living room window in the evening sun. Take care and enjoy this weather while it lasts!
