Exquisite beauty

Abut 7mm of rain fell yesterday and another 13mm overnight, making the yard much too wet to work in. So we took a drive, then stopped for a walk in a bush. We were treated to many wonderful sights, sounds, and experiences. It was a treat to see many, many White Trilliums, Ontario’s floral emblem. This one was particularly exquisite.

Another sign spring has arrived, first sighting of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Reclusive and shy birds, this fellow watched and waited by the bird feeder for over five minutes before finally dropping down to feed. Then he hung around, perched inconspicuously in the Scotch pine for some time, singing sweetly as we ate dinner. Welcome back, we have missed you.
