Quiet. I love it and seek it out. Today’s desire for peaceful reflection drove me back to the Orillia Fish and Game Conservancy. I knew that there was at least one trail there that I hadn’t explored yet.
Happily, I didn’t encounter any bees. What I did find was a trail riddled with adorable homemade signs (like the one above) alerting me to various wildflowers and tree species. I already plan to do this trail again in late spring or early summer. I love wildflowers and trees but can only definitely identify a handful of either. I’m up for learning the names of some of these fascinating plants I spot.
The trail had various paths branching off of it leading to marsh lookout points. Each place had a certain beauty about it.
I’m really growing fond of my own shadow. That’s good because it goes with me wherever I go!
Something about the way these leaf droppings floated on the water made me think of swirls on a modern art painting. If I ever try painting, this photo may inspire me. There’s something about the colours and the movement that I find pretty.
I actually spent a few hours meandering today. I’m astounded at that. It didn’t seem like I was there that long. This isn’t what a lot of people would call fun (I invited D and P to come along knowing that they would say “no thanks”) but it must be fun for me because I keep going back and time just flies when I’m there.
