A Lovely Evening Mosiac

Last week was the last meeting of our Naturalist group for the summer months.  We went on a hike at the Koffler Scientific Reserve in York Region.   It is a lovely place to visit.  It is owned by the University of Toronto and is used by many science students for their projects.  You see all around coloured flags that you are to stay away from as they are some students summer project.   The night was lovely with few mosquitoes.   I thought you might like to look at something elese rather than what is growing in my garden at the moment.  I will bore you with that later in the week.  Visit Mary at DearLittleRedHouse for more mosiacs.   Have a great gardening week.   Valerie

Beautiful mosaic! I have scrolled down to visit other posts of yours -- love your photography! I am still at the point-and-shoot stage, myself. Someday I'll do grown up picture taking!

Love the name of your blog. I grew up on Long Island -- thought sand WAS soil!

I am so excited to see your mosaic! We like to hike to new places with our Cavaliers. I used to ride at Jokers Hills many did I say many moons ago! I will enjoy visiting it now to see the changes.

Lovely mosaic. I don't know that particular reserve. The possibility of mosquitoes would have put me off, but I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your visit unmolested.
