So far the weather has been so awesome this spring. We had our first 80 degree day around the 8th. I did an early morning walk around the neighbourhood and it was already a bit toasty for my preference, but low humidity.
Bridal veil flower
Gibraltar azaleas. They look a lot like rhodies.
Good timing again.
The train was going to the Sandwich side; that engine is at the back of the train, being pulled.
I've never seen irises with these colours.
The next day was cool and cloudy. I was over in Sandwich and on the way home, finally stopped on Tupper Road to see the Saddle & Pillion Burial Ground. It contains the graves of one of Sandwich's founding fathers, Edmund Freeman, and is located on what was once the Freeman Farm land.
I heard about this place when I was a kid but I never found out specifically where it was on Tupper Road. Last year I noticed that a sign was finally on the road showing where it is.
This stone is supposed to resemble a saddle.
I wonder who placed that branch with the pinecones right above the picture of the branch & pinecones on the plaque?
And this stone supposedly looks like a pillion, whatever that is.
It's a really pretty place. I'm glad I stopped.
