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 really break...
Mother's Day
Mother's Day visit reminiscing. Merlin's Hollow English garden, what can I say, it's a garden full of hidden flowering treasures, crawling and flying creatures, and calming nature sounds. Okay, once in a while a crow interrupts with a sound equivalent to a drum beat. "No two gardens are the same. No two...
Aurora Community Arboretum
The Aurora Community Arboretum has a full task force behind it - a task force of experienced and hard working volunteers that many of us don't see. "Knock, knock!" I echoed back in my head - "Who is there?" It was someone at my door I didn't know. I had...
Birding
Birding in the Town of Aurora is fun, especially in the spring. Yes, spring is finally here. Birds are here. Tiny flowers starting to poke their heads to reach out for the sun. Not much of green grass but it will fill in anytime soon. Trees starting to bud....
Wiarton Willie
Wiarton Willie, who is he anyway? What - a prognosticator groundhog, future weather-teller? I have not really paid attention to Wiarton Willie since I arrived in Canada back in the late 80’s.

Super moon
Super moon, tonight is the record braking full moon, in fact the biggest in 68 years. Enjoy! If you out there in Aurora Ontario look up.
Trees in the Aurora Heritage Conservation District. Few years ago when I made stopover at near St. John's Sideroad and Leslie Street area I have noticed a line of marked trees with a numbered metal tag. I thought - some kind of protection numbering system for the trees. I...
Moon Over Aurora
Moon over Aurora though not a full moon tonight. The Moon, a natural Earth satellite, that shines over us at night and during the day not because it emits light but reflects. There was nothing special about tonight's moon but it was bright enough and tempting enough to photograph. Sometimes...
My memories of the St. John's sideroad open farmed fields are slowly fading away (Lundy Farm). Less and less I hear from some of my acquaintances, "it used to be such a nice relaxing drive between Bayview and Leslie." Take a drive, no longer can one feel like that....
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 field filled...
