Historical Non-Fiction in Northern Ontario

Changing Seasons – June 2017

This is what it’s all about, folks. The floral glory that is Northern Ontario.

What’s that? There’s more to the north than rocks and lakes and trees?

You bet your sweet bunchberry there is!

Just the other day I discovered the underwater macro feature on my camera.  Love the results for these dry land shots!

As with so many landscape images, the camera cannot adequately capture the expanse, the scale (with out without a body present), the emotional impact. But I’ll share with you some of June’s fields of flowers anyway.

Photo credit to my hubby for the artsy header image.

Stay tuned for July wherein you will learn who gets the blueberries first: me or the bears?

  1. Never having lived in a snowy area, I can’t imagine the joy of seeing flowers start to emerge, then bloom after the snow begins to melt. Beautiful!

  8. Love some of your close-up bloom shots…and the fields of ‘weeds.’

    You know what a weed is, right? It’s one of them ‘independent’ plants that refuse to grow in a straight line for the humans.

  13. I’m not sure which impresses more – the wonderful photos of all these wildflowers, or the fact you know what all of them are!!
    I know have a new name for the orange hawkweed. I’ve always thought of them as devil’s paintbrushes.


  14. Gorgeous photos. You have an eye for it. Our flowers, while similar to yours, are never as colorful. I’m in awe of the lupins. No, actually, I’m jealous.


  15. Those flowers were worth waiting for!

  17. What an amazing sight – especially all the yellow hawkweed and the dogwood, what variety! Lovely.


  18. So many of my favourites here! I call hawkweed ‘devil’s paintbrush’ – have you heard that before? I love seeing great swaths of wildflowers. Lucky you!

  19. Lovely, almost perfect examples of floral display. Did you know all their names before you headed out? I like the sharp, crisp details on the petals. And of course, if the bears want the berries, let the bears have the berries!
