New Beginnings For Living in Aurora Blog

My new exploration of nature and culture in Aurora, of course with my new camera and my son by my side, starts here.

Yes, everything has an end. It is going to be an expensive year for our household. My DSLR camera broke down, appliances needed to be replaced, windows and doors definitely need replacing, and the end of the lease vehicle was returned back in November. I predict empty pockets by the end of June. My advice is to never buy items with the same life expectancy at the same time.

Well, how can I have a photo journal blog and no camera? With extensive research, heavy thinking about finances, and one trip to the store, I got myself a new DSLR – Canon EOS 7D. It’s a little more advanced piece of equipment, but I am getting the hang of it.

Now, a new blog platform – WordPress. I am saying goodbye to Blogger. My new exploration of nature and culture in Aurora, of course with my new camera and my son by my side, starts here. I plan to write more and definitely explore more. Nature in Aurora will be my niche. Culture in Aurora will be something I am ready for. History will be fun to learn. Politics I will leave to the experts.

Hope everyone in Aurora enjoyed Earth Hour 2011.

Willow Trees, St. John’s Sideroad and Cliff Trail

This may be a simple photo of the trees. However, I have noticed while looking around the town that a lot of willow trees are falling down. Aurora is definitely planting a lot of trees on the grounds. The question is, what about the willow trees? Will this be the end of the willow trees era, or will they survive by spreading new shoots?

Please be advised that the personal photo blog Living In Aurora Dot Ca underwent a fresh start. As of 2024, all posts (more than a decade later) can now be found on Living in Aurora Dot Com.

Willow trees are gorgeous, but awfully messy, especially if they are planted near houses. There used to be a huge one at the end of my driveway, and it was always dropping leaves and sticky sap and twice dropped heavy damaging limbs on my car during summer storms. Plus the roots love to twist towards water pipes.
