Many flowers are starlike in form, but these little springtime beauties have a special right to their name. The astral effect of their blossoms is repeated in an underlying collar of white pointed leaves. They are shade-loving little plants that love rich woodsy soil and bogs. They are one of my favorites.

I just can't get over how the White Trillium's are so abundant this year...this hill was just covered, with the odd Stinky Benjamins ( Red Trillium )scattered amongst them....The Red Trillium's are very interesting, they are pollinated by the carrion fly, therefore the reason for their horrible stink, and their color represents the same color of flesh!!!

For you Birders out there, I had never seen this bird before and was so pleased after I took this shot and did my research to find it is from the woodpecker family. I love discovering the bird varieties here in Muskoka and beyond.

This is my friend Catharine from Fort Erie who's experience with a Moose in her past, was like seeing a fly on the windshield...so with her being so close to such a good size Bull was a thrill of a lifetime for her....I'm sure we will do this more often than once!!!!it was a blast Catharine!!!!
This was last year's calf and he was not very shy, he spooked a bit when a transport truck would zoom by, but then he would soon be back out feasting on the tender cattail shoots and salty water along the hwy. We saw a total of 9 cows and 8 bulls...it was so exciting for my friend who has never been so close to this majestic animal...now if we could see them as often when they have their full racks on...then I would be just as excitied
