This is one of the most dramatic locations in our area:
Buffaloberry is a shrub which enjoys the clayish soil at the bottom of the bluffs. I see it in no other Toronto location. Buffaloberry is also know as Soapberry.
The buds are a lovely golden colour:
How like a winter hath my absence been
From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!
What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen?
What old December’s bareness every where! – William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
