A Walk in the Park


Scanlon Creek Pond

Monday of the Long Weekend my husband and I went for a walk in Scanlon Creek Conservation Area, a park not far away.  This pond was full of water for swimming and canoeing until a few years ago when the parks people decided that that the pond should be drained and go back to its natural habitat.

Here the sun was pouring through the trees onto the trail going up the hill.

picnic table among the wildflowers

This picnic table looks like it has not had anyone eat at it for a  while. The goldenrod is pretty tall around it.

We had a good day today. Went to visit our daughter in law and our granddaughter.  Had to have a little cuddle time with grandma.

It sounds like it was a wonderful weekend, Valerie, and it sure look like the weather cooperated for you. I love the photograph of the picnic table. It looks like the perfect place to just sit quietly for a bit.

Have a wonderful day!

The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
