Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Bits and Pieces



The wild flowers are starting to come out. The Wood Lily is now out in all its glory.





Unfortunately, the flowers do not last long




The Indian Paintbrush is just starting to show


 They are an unusual plant and quite distinctive.





The Common Marsh Bedstraw is rather delicate and unique.


Then, there is the Bumblebee on a Red Clover blossom.




A Great Blue Heron was enjoying a tranquil hot day!


Another Heron, almost invisible in the marsh grass




The Canola plants are starting to bloom out. They were previously known as Rapeseed plants, but I guess the name needed changing.




There are no signs of any baby Osprey yet, but the Missus is very vigilant
