Spring Walks Starting

European Pussy Willow

When I went to bed last night, I had completely forgotten TDSB nature walks with Miles Hearn were starting Saturday morning. This morning, I awoke at 7:40 and suddenly I realized I had a nature walk starting in 20 minutes. I threw on some clothes, grabbed my camera and water bottle and ran out the door. Fortunately, the first walk of the season was scheduled for Sam Smith Park, just a couple blocks away.

Miles is a fabulous naturalist who has been leading nature walks for more than a dozen years for the Toronto school board. I was a regular attendee until the pandemic started and I ripped my quad tendon on a bit of ice. My tendon was well repaired, though it took over a year to get back all my strength and balance. I signed up for the early Saturday morning walks this spring. Good thing I knew these walks fill up fast and signed up minutes after they opened up online. This round of walks apparently filled up in about 20 minutes.

It was a grey morning, but at least the rain mostly held off.
