Laurier Woods is a neat, easily accessible area in our town. Trails wind through maple and birch bush and beside wetland ponds kept full by beaver dams.
Forest Bathing combined with exercise and wildlife observation can be practiced by people of all ages.
A treat for the body and mind.
Recently I ambled along the trails and made photographs of whatever interested me.
These are a few of many that I made.
Growing in the Waterfront Gardens.

The garden is in great shape. Colour everywhere.
Tulips in Sweetman’s Garden.
The tulips are ready in Sweetman’s Garden.
Tulip time near Amsterdam.
The brightness of Summer is present in the flowers that grow.
Right now, everyone is waiting impatiently for spring.
One forgets that it was only four short months ago that the last of the flowers were waiting for winter.
Over the past weeks I have been posting photographs on other sites.

Still a place which brings quiet to my soul and excitement to my mind. Were it not for the energy and caring of many people, this place would be lost to the Philistines.
Fortunately for all of us it is not filled with houses.
Some of my recent photographs.
It’s early days and the Waterfront Gardens are not very active. The cold and snowy start to the month of May has slowed growth significantly.
Nonetheless, several hardy plants were active yesterday in the midst of flying snowflakes.
