The road we chose to turn on said it was a dead end. We half thought we would end up in someone's driveway but instead we ended up at this sign stating the Bruce Trail was this way.
We jumped out of the truck and followed the sign which took us to the bottom of a ravine and a wonderful little creek area.
|Our neighbour Kodey came with us too|
The Yellow Marsh Marigold was beautiful and bright.
The sun shone through the trees and it was a beautiful little area but the black flies were bad. Just as we decided to hit the trail and go for a bit of a walk instead I found this family of Jack-in-the-Pulpits.
We found more Wild Ginger and this time I got a better picture of the flower. When I saw the leaves I asked Sierra if she could show everyone where we learned the flowers hide and she found some blooms in no time.
Normally on walks we try to leave the flowers be. Today we picked a few dandelions and 1 violet each as the violets were plentiful and in full bloom.

|Not sure what this one is...any ideas???|

Before leaving all the girls got to pick one Marsh Marigold. They are poisonous so please do watch to make sure your children do not try to eat them.
I found a few more Trilliums...
