Merlin's Hollow, the English flower garden - is my annual local destination where I bring almost all of my photographic equipment to photograph nature's most beautiful flowers. It it also probably the most rewarding local road trip I take twice or three times a year that is...
What happened to the Canada Geese? I have noticed that around the McKenzie Wetland, the Atkinson Wetland and the Nokiidaa Trail Link boardwalk on St. John's Sideroad, just East of Yonge Street, views have been almost "goose free." I am not complaining. There are many other hard...
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...
McKenzie Wetland, how about writing a bit about this nature place? Overload encountered. Often I get a sudden surge of thoughts and a sudden urge to write a blog post. In fact my thoughts are related to our Aurora community and politics mostly; not just municipal politics lately; and...
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.

Birds are in a full swing, hovering over our gardens, trails and streets of Aurora. Singing away. Yes, nest making and long anticipated mating or even hatching season is happening now. Trees are filling in and grass is getting greener. In fact it is almost green everywhere,...
Atkinson Park
Visiting Atkinson Park. What's better, blue skies and cold weather or warmer weather and overcast skies? I take the blue skies and cold over the latter. Shorter days and no sun, that's what I observed this winter. Lots of gloomy dark days, especially when there is no...
Dandelion, aha. One morning I was driving on McMaster Avenue (Town of Aurora) near the hydro lines and I noticed a beautiful and healthy as ever field full of dandelions. One might think we had a very harsh and damaging winter and yet here is this beautiful...
Beautiful sunsets over the Town of Aurora do exist. In the middle of the field on the hill surrounded by critters in the grass and some unknown creatures hiding I stood there for almost one hour to capture this beautiful sunset. Last night it happened to be a...
