Cottage Country/ Nature Notes

Last Sunday near Huntsville, Ontario

Berries and a few blossoms still decorate the wilds of central Ontario. Seen here in the largest square: the red berries of common winterberry (Ilex verticillata). Working clockwise: common tansy (Tanacetum vulgare), red clover (Trifolium pratense), common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca), toadflax or butter-and-eggs (Linaria vulgaris),  and wintergreen (Gaultheria procumens).

Things are winding down for the season, but there will still be some time before the snow flies...
