are glorious things ... even if you stick close to home. I've spent a fair bit of time sitting in the lounge chair on the back deck reading. Some of it mindless (Grisham's "The Chamber") and some of it stuff that makes you think (Erwin Raphael McManus' "Uprising")

Have also been out and about along some local trails. The trillium's are in full force. And this weekend I even spotted the rarely found burgundy trillium.

And made it to the RBG for the tulips in the Rock Garden ... camera's battery frustratingly dying about an hour after arrival ... the one frustration of digital camera's! But I managed to get some nice shots ... both flora & fauna ... was startled by a rather larger Garter Snake sunning itself on one of the rocks ... it was at least 18" long and a good 1" thick! It slithered away quick enough.

And tomorrow it's the first MAJOR bike ride of the season ... Dundas Rail Trail here I come ... I'll probably be lounging again on Thursday to recoup! :)

That burgundy trillium is so cool! I've been checking here often in the hopes that you would post a pic. :)

Wow. Great pics.

I am not envious that you are on vacation.

No I am not.

Kelly said...

THREAT (giggle) ... it is a cool flower. Not sure i would have noticed it ... someone on the trail pointed it out!

PATTI ... ummm ... yeah ... vacations aren't all they're cracked up to be.

GOD ... forgive me for lying to Patti.
