Mabel Davis Trail


Mabel Davis Trail collage

The other day my husband suggested that we walk along the Mabel Davis Trail in Newmarket, Ontario.   He is unable to go too far but a short walk would be okay.   I brought my camera along.  It was a lovely day and the late summer colours along the trail were lovely.  The Go Train track runs along the one side of the East Holland River.   I love the colour of the sumac in the fall and the teasel is a photographic favourite.  I have not been able to identify the pink flowers yet.  They look like a beardstongue but grow 6 and 7 feet tall with long leaves. 

This is the last day of the August Break but I seem to have a rhythm here posting a photo in the evening so I will carry on for a bit.  Hope you will stick with me.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. 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…
