Nature Friday - A Walk - by Phod

Dear pals,

Lady did something unusual last weekend, she grabbed her phone so she could take some pictures on our morning walk.

It was a nice sunny morning. We were out before the black flies were. They are terrible this year and make us want to stay inside!

Come on Lady let's go!


We walked to the pond. It is about a km or .66 miles from our house.


This is an important pond because it is also a place for fire fighters to access water for forest fires.


The spring has the hills (which are part of the Canadian Shield - a large area of exposed rock that is the geological core of North America) are alive with trilliums. In places there are thousands. Unfortunately those are in places off the highway Lady can't safely photograph. Here are a few. 


Hope you enjoyed this walk. I needed a nap after it! 


 Thanks to Rosy for hosting Nature Friday.

    The trilliums are very pretty - but that view over the water is delightful and peaceful and very much worth your having made the effort to walk there and back - well done Lee and Phod for making sure Lady didn't go astray... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. What a great walk. We don't have those black flies but in a few weeks we have biting flies (deer flies) that keep us inside too. Those trillium are so pretty.

  7. I did enjoy the walk and I was especially interested in where the firefighters get water. I've often wondered

  9. I would love to be able to grow trilliums where we live, but they are very rare and expensive here in New Zealand - up to $30 for a plant. Last year I managed to kill two of them. Lovely photos of your walk.
