I was brought to a performance at the Shaw Festival when I was a child and have rarely missed a summer visit to Niagara-on-the-lake since.
These Covid 19 days, the town is discouraging visitors by putting no parking signs everywhere.
Here are few photos:
Spring arrives earlier here.
It’s not just the plants which are ahead of Toronto in springlike display. I heard and eventually spotted my first Baltimore Oriole of the spring. This bird’s rich, whistling song is only heard in our area for about 6 weeks so I especially love to hear it.
Other birds that I was able to photograph:
Summer, fall, winter, spring,
The seasons rotate as each brings
Its special beauty to this Earth of ours.
Winter’s snow and summer’s flowers;
Frozen rivers will flow come spring,
There is a renewal of everything. – Edna Frohock (1906–97)
Love that town. So quaint.
Did not know that the plaque dedicated to the Lake Ontario swimmers existed. Must search for it.
Take in the Shaw often but maybe not this year. Have tickets for Gypsy.
Beautiful bird that Baltimore Oriole.
Thanks Miles for this virtual visit to this historical town.
Beautiful photos as always. Thanks Miles
Oh, how absolutely gorgeous! How it gladdens my heart! And what a beautiful town, too! Thank you so much, Miles!
