Mid-Summer Sunset

Golden Light Three years ago a group of Arboretum volunteers created the "Canada 150 Trail" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the creation of Canada.Quite by chance it was found this year that the Birch Alley that forms part of the trail is directly oriented towards the setting sun for the few [...]

Morning in the Winter Arboretum

I was leading a field trip (ie: guided morning birding walk) in the arboretum earlier today. A gloriously sunny, but cool, morning.
