Vincent’s first trip to the beach was a success, he loved the sand between his fingers and kept pulling us to walk towards the water. What a joy to see him experiencing the wonders of nature for the first time. Here are a few photos from our outing to Wainfleet’s Long Beach.
Yesterday we spent a few hours helping out at the Boyter Family Farm in Fonthill to learn about the process of cultivating mushrooms by working hand in hand with them. Here are a few photos from the first stage of cultivating shiitake mushrooms with a brief description below each as well as a link with more in depth information if you’re interested.
Mid spring flowers in our backyard garden. A lilly, lilacs, violets and columbine flowers. all except the lilac started from seed or bulb last year or the year before.
A few photos from our hike around Malcomson Eco-Park. One of the unique aspects of this park is it’s many upcycled bird houses found in it’s tress as you walk around the park.
