Our first hike in the country this year, and talk about May flowers! It was the perfect day to see blossoms on our native fruit trees and the woodland plants and shrubs.
Here is the list of what the twelve of us saw in bloom today:
early blue violet (see right)
saskatoon (see above)
low bush cranberry
We also saw a white tailed deer and a frog.
Here we are on the smart new boardwalk that the trail maintenance team installed last week. The heap of boards at the bottom left is the old walk.
As you know the beavers are very active in this area. This tree will not be standing upright for much longer. Here you see only the base of a really tall poplar tree. We did not linger for long.
