Tues., May 3

The clouds came and went today, but it was mostly a lovely day.

The demolition at Wellington and Princess.   The Golden Rooster is now the last building on the block.  Look at all those wonderful stones.  I wonder if those would ever be re-used, or if it is just trash.

Little baby lilacs.

Looking west across the Cataraqui River.  I couldn’t read what the boat was, but it looked like a fire boat.  It came back a few minutes later, so I think they were just trying something out.

The leaves are coming along slowly.  I would imagine that they are behind what they would usually be, because of the unusually cool weather.   I noticed on the heron cam from Vancouver that the leaves are far ahead of ours.

At Hwy 15 and Gore Road there is the Pittsburgh Branch Library, a dog park, a community garden and this parkland.   It is a delightful spot, next to the river.

Look at the bark on this!   Underneath was evidence of nuts–not sure what kind, but walnut-like shells.   Looking at walnut trees online, it doesn’t look like the same bark.  I wonder if Joan, our nature expert, is reading?

I’ll post some more pictures  of this outing tomorrow.
