When I first started this blog, I began a “Beauty in every season” series. However, I only made as far as Winter. Inspired by a nice, long walk I took last weekend (with my camera, of course), I think it’s time to resurrect this series. I started it because I don’t really have a favourite season. There are things I love (and hate) about each of the seasons. Take spring for instance. I love all the new growth; green and spring flowers are popping up everywhere. It’s exciting when the weather starts getting nice without being stifling hot or humid, and before the bugs are out in full force. However, if you are like me and suffer from seasonal allergies, this is a tough time of year. Still, I can’t help myself – I love being outside in the sun and fresh air!
So for the month of May, I’m going to share with you some of my favourite photos from the places I love to explore at this time of year. First stop: one of my favourite hiking trails, Komoka Provincial Park, west of London.
Anyone who knows this trail will wonder where all the trilliums are, as they are certainly in abundance at this time of year. I decided to omit them since I did an entire blog post on trilliums a couple of weeks ago.
Next week in Part 2 of the series, I’ll show you what I’ve been able to enjoy as (nearly) my own back yard in various places I’ve lived in the city.
