As the father of four children, I have spent many hours in various East York parks that have playground equipment. During this year’s March break, I am going to revisit one each day and make a post of some of the nature that I find there.
Coleman is a small park containing tennis courts and playground equipment.
Here are some of the planted trees:
Kentucky Coffee Tree;
the triangular buds of Hackberry;
Norway Maple keys;
the red buds of Linden;
the seeds of Linden
Amur Maple keys;
Sugar Maple with much lichen;
The green labels indicate that the tree has been sprayed to prevent Emerald Ash Borer.
White Spruce cones;
White Cedar cones;
Here are some of the species occurring naturally next to the fence:
Wych Elm with its blueish bark;
a row of Manitoba Maple;
Norway Maple with its reddish buds;
the tendrils of Riverbank Grape vines.
