Community Arboretum


My work was somehow rudely interrupted by a mouse. That not so tiny grey furry creature zoomed under the Muskoka chair I was sitting on, and disappeared (nature’s magic). Well, it was really my pouring ‘green‘ thoughts that were interrupted. “What happened to my inside plant? Why did that one tiny fern at the window suddenly …

It is hard to believe that the Aurora Community Arboretum is about two decades old; a beautiful parkland stretch located in the East end of our town. The Aurora Community Arboretum is a unique green park and is accessible from many locations. Each entrance location is unique in its own way. I must say that there was …

We are currently experiencing heavy May (2017) showers, that according to the weatherman will continue until Sunday. Potential spring flooding. So far, not too cold and not too warm, just perfect temperature for a steady unveiling of spring’s greens. The green picture is being painted as we speak. Today I volunteer in the school. It’s …

During the winter I have seen no one yet. However, it would be a total understatement to say ‘no one in the winter‘ because based on the amount …

I have a confession. I’ve lived in Aurora (on and off) for decades. I’ve lived in the south back when it was all new builds; garage after garage. Before the gorgeous trees took hold and it morphed into the leafy, green oasis that it is today. I’ve lived in the old part of town; post …
