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...
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.
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....

It was a hot humid overcast day at Merlin's Hollow English Garden last Sunday. During my visit on that day when I passed by David Tomlinson I said to him 'when I will leave this place today there is one thing I am not going to thank...
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...
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...
