Winter is back in Aurora (Hamilton Park) for the second time this year. We only had two full snowfalls in Town as of today February 18, 2016. No one expected that this year will be a warm winter; the Town didn't either. We almost gave up on the snow; but it came. Will...
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. My latest easy find, a Yellow Crab Spider crawling over a purple Iris. No camouflage here. Perhaps it was an accidental landing as these yellow crab spiders...
Another great photo journey on June 13, 2015 through the Merlin's Hollow, an English garden in Aurora, a collection of about 2000 flowering species, of course not photographed yet by me. It rained most of the week, heavy showers in fact, thunders and tornado warnings, and it rained the...

A small plaque mounted on one of the wooden bridges over the creek that runs through the St. Andrew's Valley Golf course says, "In 1832 on this spot nothing happened." The plaque got my attention. I have too many questions but I will not contemplate further. Perhaps, just a random...
It is a matter of time and the Aurora Community Arboretum will be green again. However, having said that we must first wait for the winter signs to go away. We had an extra long winter this year and still a lot of ice and snow left on the...
Peter Cameron's pictures from 2004 of the St. Johns Sideroad reconstruction project certainly bring back memories. What was once a two lane, non illuminated, country road is now a four lane road with a major railway crossing, a spectacular McKenzie Marsh boardwalk on the North side of St. John's...
Today birding at the Aurora boardwalk on St. John's sideroad. Birds are in a full swing, hovering over our gardens, trails and perhaps every street of Aurora. Singing away. Yes, nest making and long anticipated mating or even hatching season is happening now. Trees are filling in and grass...
McKenzie Wetland - how about writing a bit about this nature place and Aurora's gem? 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...
Beautiful views of the Oak trees in the morning fog, both located at the Aurora Community Arboretum. Look out from parking lot of the Aurora Off Leash Dog Park on Industrial Parkway. "Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them." ~ William Arthur Ward "An early-morning walk...
