Spring Fling – Trilliums and Foliage – Beach Estates Park

Stream at the bottom of the Ravine.

The ravine that is Beach Estates Park was alive with birdsong as we walked down the trail towards the water.  The stream was gurgling and burbling as it moved beside us, tumbling towards the falls and the bottom of the ravine below.

Tom had walked Sophie there earlier last week and noted that the Trilliums were in bloom.  I hoped that there still would be some blooming.

I was in luck.  The ravine was alive with blooms, some aging and changing to pink, others fresh, white and glowing.  I even saw a couple of pink curly lilies.  There were many types of new foliage, fern fronds and leaves, flowers and trees.  The ravine is rapidly greening for the summer.

Down at the Beach there were a couple of blossoming trees – branches blowing in the breeze and looking stunning against the blue skies.

The walk back up to the parking lot was different from the walk down – I saw even more Trilliums.  The sight line angles were different!  The sun had come out as well and was highlighting many of the flowers.

There was a brown wren watching from above and singing a warning – there must have been a nest close by.

Blue sky and flowering trees!  What could be more beautiful?

I did get a small start in our garden today.  I bought a rhododendron and looked a couple of small flowering trees, planted a lavender that had been in a pot and pulled a few weeds.

I have a plan.  A yellow laburnum tree for the corner by the gate – lots of sun there, with heathers underneath.  And, over by the compost a red Japanese maple – perfection!

Spring is here!

Happy Spring

  1. Breathtaking! Trilliums and ferns have the most relaxed, promising look at this time of year.
