Trip to Belleville!

It was quite a journey. May 15th I had a bee in my bonnet. I'd been looking for some Jack-in-the-pulpit plants. We had some in our Ottawa home's garden. An Internet search revealed a Belleville man, Peter, who specializes in rare and native plants. They are open Wednesday to Saturday, we had to motor. More on my plants later.

In the meantime, it was a wonderful drive, past lakes, trees in flower, water treatments, golfers, a real live hobo, voluntary road toll, the ubiquitous construction sites, Ontario farms, interesting houses and, finally, the funniest mailbox!

What a character! On the sidewalk!

Lovely views from your drive. Views with water always seem so peaceful to me.

That's quite a drive. Some of the scenery's very familiar to me. I love that mailbox!

AwesomE photo story. Ontario is a beautiful place if you take out Toronto!

That is quite the mailbox. Just catching up on your latest posts. Did you get your Jack in the pulpit? I had one a few years ago but lost it over one of the bad winters.
