I’ve always wondered what the hamlet of Manilla looks like and decided to visit it and combine that with a nature walk.
I walked on more of the Beaver River trail:

Recently I posted this series of photos of deer taken in a Toronto cemetery: https://mileshearn.com/2020/03/29/deer-in-park-lawn-cemetery-bonnie-horne/

There’s a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
’Twas St. Patrick himself sure that set it;
And the Sun on his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it. – Andrew Cherry (1762–1812)
