This 190-hectare was opened in 1962 and overlaps the Oak Ridges Moraine.
There are many hiking trails here with names like: Century Forest Trail, Pine Plantation Trail, Cedar Grove Trail, Wetlands Trail, Mixed Forest Trail and the one on which I spent most of my time on this day: Old Meadow Trail.
There are many Bluebird nesting boxes:
and I did see a few:
and a Cedar Waxwing:
I was able to photograph a few insects. There were dozens of Wood-nymphs but it took half an hour until I finally found one that wasn’t darting about:
this is the garden: colours come and go,
frail azures fluttering from night’s outer wing
strong silent greens serenely lingering,
absolute lights like baths of golden snow. – e. e. cummings (1894–1962)
