By the railroad tracks, Mount Albert (East Gwillimbury)
Ever since I was a little kid I've enjoyed playing near the railroad tracks. Different railroad tracks now, though. Trains pass along these many times a day - Canadian National, Ontario Northern and Via Rail. Passengers and cargo. But now instead of collecting rocks and bouquets of flowers, I make photos.
This week, tree swallows must be nesting. They are making a racket and sitting on the fence watching my every move.
Working clockwise: common goat's beard (Tragopogan dubius), purple alfalfa (Medicago sativa), chicory (Cichorium intybus), black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) and oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare).
Please note that I include the botanical names because they remain the same around the world but the common names vary.
