Every time I go hiking I feel like I've been on a mini holiday - even though I am close to home. Being in the woods is very different from my everyday world. On this past Sunday picnic hike we saw many wildflowers ie. blue cohash, wild ginger, wild leeks, garlic mustard and trilliums to name a few, and a large garter snake sunning itself.
We came across a clear cut area done by the hydro crew putting in new lines. Many trees were taken down and lots of wild leek clumps were left in the sun to bake. Knowing they wouldn't survive out in the open field I didn't feel too guilty for digging up a few more.
