Spring Beauty

The spring flowers are coming up including the wild leeks.
The escarpment is amazing, moss covered and full of secret valleys and cliffs.

The new digs

We moved in April 1st!
still not sure if this is an April Fools joke or not. There are many different surfaces in the house, including 3 different kinds of artificial wood panelling and a carpet in the bedroom our friend Hamish calls "Dead animal pelt camouflage".
We are now actively ripping out every surface we possibly can hopefully in preparation to renovate.
Mono Cliffs Provincial park is incredibly beautiful and there are several sets of nesting Canadian geese on the pond behind us who honk happily every morning and evening.
Our friend Dan visiting from New York City noted that this really must be the wild because the geese don't swim up to you looking for food.
Today I discovered a small patch of trilliums and the little water fall tucked into the woods just north of us, it's only a matter of time until we turn it into a magical outdoor shower.
