During my working years, I used to lament that the seasons were passing by and I was taking little notice of them. Suddenly the snow fell, or leaves burnished with colour and I barely noticed. Starting on March 16 this year, I decided to go out into nature every day and explore and learn. This report marks my 107th straight day of doing so and a dream is coming alive.
For some of these posts, I have walked as far as 8 kms. On this day, I found more than enough to photograph along a 100 metre section of a stream near Lawrence and Bayview.
Once again, thank-you to Ken Sproule for his assistance in creature identification.
A Song Sparrow serenaded me during my entire visit singing about 4 times a minute for an hour. (approx. 250 songs!)
Hot July brings cooling showers,
Apricots, and gillyflowers. – Sara Coleridge (1802–52)
