Before we get started on the rainy day, here are a couple of pictures from last week.
I love when the Bridal Spirea is out, and this is one of my favourite showings of it, along Stagecoach Road. Magnificent!
I thought I would take a break from our southwestern Ontario tour and get back to local scenes for a couple of days, and then we will get back to Stratford.
I had to go to a celebration at Hotel Kenney at Jones Falls today, and took some pictures along the way. This morning it was just bucketing down, but by the time I got on the road, it had eased off a bit. By evening the sun had come out. I don’t take many rainy pictures, and I don’t want to give folks the idea that Kingston is always basking in sunshine. However, I heard on the news today that Kingston has only had 1/4 of the rain it usually gets in the spring.
Looking east from Rideaucrest.
Just north of Sunbury.
I ran into this young lady getting ready to lay her eggs at the side of the road–probably not the wisest place to do so. As far as I could see, there were no eggs yet–she was still digging.
Boy, you can’t even lay your eggs in peace without the paparazzi bothering you.
Wild Daisies and Birdfoot Trefoil.
The Hotel Kenney at Jones Falls
The hotel is kind of old fashioned but comfy and cottagey inside.
More tomorrow, along Opinicon Road.
