Boardwalk along St. John's Sideroad. Anna Lozyk RomeoAurora, Ontario
Sheppard's Bush Conservation Area - beautiful during all seasons.

Rarely in the past would I have stopped and read a notice board on trails. Circumstances have changed slightly - I like to be informed. The other day walking Sheppard's Bush trail I came across this Notice to Visitors from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA). It was with...
Visiting Merlin's Hollow English flower garden never fails me. No matter how many times I visit the Tomlinson's garden, I always stumble upon something new.
