Thompson Park in Scarborough is a good place to explore at any time of the year. It includes a part of Highland Creek:
and a wild field which was gloriously in bloom on this day:
I will identify it at the end of the post.
Five leaves in a whorl identify this vine as Virginia Creeper.
Then flash the wings returning Summer calls
Through the deep arches of her forest halls,
The bluebird, breathing from his azure plumes
The fragrance borrowed where the myrtle blooms. – Oliver Wendell Holmes (1841–1935)
