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...
squash
By K. Taylor, Aurora ON. Peppers and melons and squash, oh my! I planted a garden this year. A wee little patch, five foot by five foot at most. To be fair, I’ve gardened for years, our tiny scrap of grass was long ago ripped up by...
Soaring Red-Tailed Hawk over St. Andrew's Valley Golf Club. Enjoy the snow because it is not going to last. Spring in Aurora is in fact around the corner. I know that for those driving everyday snow storm is not something you call a fun. I know how it is...
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...
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...
Enjoy While It Lasts, Sheppard's Bush in Fall Colours. Here I am again. I submerged myself tirelessly in federal politics for 78 long days and now I emerged just in time for the beautiful fall colours. They say shades of green are therapeutic. Perhaps yellows, oranges and...
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...
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...
Town
By K. Taylor, Aurora ON.  Striving for simplicity in a brand name town? What is that? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how to simplify life. Not just the obvious stuff. Not just the: get a maid for home, home chef and personal shopper approach. But...
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...
