In honor of those who those who served in the past, those who lost their lives and those who are presently serving their country…

Someone asked me what this symbol is…this is a Poppy, in Canada many of us wear it on our left lapel for approximately two weeks before November 11th. Our Canadian Legion offers these to the public for a donation, raising money for our Veterans. We call November 11th, Remembrance Day, Poppy Day or Armistice Day…we wear the Poppy as a symbol of respect, remembrance and thanks to past present and future fallen soldiers, and to those who continue to serve their country!

reflection, Mallard, floating

I went back to Sunset Park yesterday…I wanted to see if there were any changes since Sunday…not much really, with the exception of more snow piled up on the small islands off the shores of Sunset Park.   I rather liked this piece of ice floating along…

on my way home I stopped at the Eva Wardlaw Conservation area…the creek flows into Lake Nipissing…it was like glass yesterday…allowing for interesting reflections…

saw this Mallard Duck come out of the culvert and swim along towards Lake Nipissing…he didn’t appear to care that I was there, although he did make sure to stay close to the opposite bank…I saw a number of Mallards at Sunset Park but they didn’t like me around and quickly flew away…

spring is working on it!

here are a couple more of the ice breaking up…all were taken on Sunday.  this is facing the area/bay where I grew up, if you look closely you will see a water tower above the tree line on the left just past the clump of trees in the foreground.  my home as a child is to the left of that…I know you can’t see anything but this may help visitors understand why I love the water so much!

ice.pile.up.ssp.2.2013I like the dark and light of the pieces of ice…some pieces are more saturated with water than others…I heard on the news last evening there is a possibility of flooding on Lake Nipissing…they feel it could reach flood levels by the weekend…ice.breaking.up.2013some of you may remember I shot a photo from a similiar angle in the winter…looks different…I’ll take another when the grass is green…picnic.table.spring.2013
