I actually had all but two days of this post written this past Saturday, but just couldn’t get around to posting the last two pictures and publishing it. It’s been a busy few weeks and the next few will be much the same. So with that, the posts for the next few weeks are going to include some of my favourite pictures from my archives, in addition to some daily pictures, when I have made the time to take one. Hopefully, in July, I can get back to taking daily pictures.

We have a very healthy garden this year, with many of our perennials now well established.
It’s been a busy week, so I got behind on my posts again! This week is more of the traditional shots, with a few flowers from the garden.

The Canada 150 tulips that I posted about before have turned from their pale yellow to the white and red of the Canadian flag. They are very striking flowers in our garden, where there are few others so far.
The squirrels must have moved a few tulip bulbs last fall because I know I didn’t plant these tulips here.
This week, I wanted to focus on the Leave no Trace principles. These seven principles are about reducing the impact we have on the environment when we get outside. You can find out more information on these principles at www.leavenotrace.ca

Plan Ahead and Prepare. This one is pretty obvious, but the idea is that you plan your outdoor adventures in advance and come prepared so that you don’t impact the local environment. This might include having maps and safety equipment, but it also includes understanding your own limits and not putting yourself in a position where damage to the local environment might occur.
