There is a nice little park in the small village of Belfountain in Ontario. Great place for a walk on a winters day. Here you see the reflection of the trees on the opposite bank, not the trees themselves.
I have always loved this old wreck on Lake Ontario. It conjurs up visions of Pirates on the High seas! I have visions of Captain Jack Sparrow swinging from the Crows Nest, brandishing a sword, whilst shouting orders to fellow Pirates down on the deck!
Ok, the truth is out! I am a follower of the British soap "Coronation Street". Have been for years. I actually started watching when I was training as a paramedic on the ambulance. One of my tudor crew members was a big fan of Corrie and "forcefully" got me hooked on it. I enjoy the down to earth characters, whereas the North American Soaps are all glam and everyone is gorgeous, on "Corrie" everyone is natural. There are though, a few "good lookers" on this show too, but in a natural way. Below is a video of a new release by one of the cast Katherine Kelly, who plays Becky MacDonald on the show. It is a winner! She really has a lovely voice! I hope you enjoy it.

On a recent walk on the Bruce Penninsula Trails, I came upon a flock of geese amidst Autumn's reflections!
More Watery Wednesday here.
I walked a 5 KLM (3.5miles) walk yesterday. I have walked this Bruce Trail before but never in the fall. Although many of the colourful leaves are already on the ground it is still incredibly beautiful in the woods.If possible enlarge these pics. You will be glad you did. I started up this trail and instantly the wonderful smell of the woods in autumn flooded my senses. It is a sweet smell of the fallen leaves and damp earth. Better than cookies fresh from the oven!
I came across this large dead maple...I followed trunk up and was entranced with this colour.
Wonderful sights at Scenic Sunday!
I do remember news broadcasts that these were invading Ontario at an alraming rate. To be truthful, I didn't pay a lot of attention. Heracleum mantegazzianum or Asian Poisonous Giant Hogweed, is an invading species. Giant hogweed was first reported in Canada in 1949 and in recent years spread to Southern Ontario.
The concern is it's a very poisonous plant. If you get the sap from this plant on your skin it can cause severe blistering and ad burns. Sap in the eyes can temporarily blind you or it can be permanent! The burns can cause permanent scarring and any areas affected will be super sensitive to sunlight for years to come. It can take up to 48 hours after exposure for the symptoms to appear.
This photo I took below are of dead weeds, but they are still many seeds on them. I couldn't get over the height. These were about 10 feet tall! The plant can grow up to six metres tall, with leaves as big as 1.5 metres across. It is identified by large purple blotches or striping on its stem.
Today it felt like summer again. I went out for a ride and came across this gorgeous area. I stumble across it every once in a while and then remember it's beauty.
I went out for a drive, crossed this old bridge and I revisited a spot I like to walk. I usually go to Silver Creek in the spring when the water is higher and rushing down the stream. Today it was a slow flow of water, speaking softly to the surrounding woods. I parked and went down the embankment to the one side of the old bridge.
Thanks for visiting!
The Turkey Buzzard is a scavenger and feeds almost exclusively on carrion. It finds its meals using its keen vision and sense of smell, flying low enough to detect the gasses produced by the beginnings of the process of decay in dead animals.
Natures natural road side cleaner!
