About three weeks ago, I prepared a post which featured photos of the restored 19th-century village and of the spectacular lower falls.
The lower falls is in the shape of a horseshoe and at most times of the year has very little water flowing over it.
Yesterday I revisited the area and hiked up the majestic Twenty Mile Creek to see the upper falls. It is in the shape of a “curtain” and also had very little water flowing over it on this August day.
Each time I visit the Niagara area I find a few plants which I am unfamiliar with. There were two species today.
The delightfully named Lizard’s-tail:
and Sanicle Snakeroot:
Some photos taken in a nearby winery:
All Nature helps to swell the song
And chant the same refrain;
July and June have slipped away
And August’s here again.
