Each Friday I volunteer at the Royal Botanical Gardens in the herbarium and then, before driving home, I visit various wild and semi-wild places on the RBG property or in nearby conservation areas to look for wild flowers. In addition to wild flowers, I also observe birds, insects, trees, etc., etc. Following are three more photos from last Friday's ramble.
The Red-winged Blackbird was in the marsh by the boardwalk in RBG's Hendrie Valley trails.
The mushroom was at ground level so it may have been from the ground or a stick or stump at ground level beside a path in the RBG rose garden.
This Wisteria grows beside, and over, one of the connecting paths in the RBG rose garden.
