Beaver River/ Nature Notes

Beaver River, Cannington Ontario

Here the Beaver River meanders slowly through the village of Cannington on it's way to Lake Simcoe. Starting with the largest square and moving clockwise:  Cattails and waterlilies growing in the river, wild daylily seed pods overhanging the water, pink yarrow (Achillea millefolium) - usually white but I have seen a few pink-flowering plants this year, creeping bellflower (Campaulla rapunculoides), burdock (Arctium minus), and red-osier dogwood berries.

How in the world do you remember the names of all these flowers? Did you see any beavers in the Beaver River? Dam things, anyway!

Jacob said...

Re your comment on Stone Creek - no, everything is bright green now...our grass turns brown if we have a winter freeze...ugh!

Have you ever posted something about why and how you do this amazing cataloguing of Ontario? It would be interesting to know.

I was just in LaCrosse, Wisconsin and I saw water lillies in the Mississippi - all over the place! I was so surprised.
