Good afternoon fellow flora appreciators!
Something you may not know about me - aside from being a wanderer and explorer of outdoor areas, an enthusiast and identifier of wildflowers, and working in the aviation industry - I am also a student. Yes, of the school of life and ongoing learning everyday, but I mean officially too. And today meant that I was back at it at Trent University.
So, now that you know more about me, here is more about today: today consisted of four hours of class and four hundred dollars spent on text books (and still two classes that I will need to buy books for next week, sigh). My classes all seem very interesting and I am looking forward to them immensely.
After classes I decided to walk home, I could have taken the bus, but I like taking the long way home as it's much more scenic. So with my heavy book bag I embarked on that trek. I decided to take the long-cut home through the Lady Eaton Drumlin (part of the Trent Nature Area) and then through a small section of University Heights Park. It was a pleasant stroll, of course, and I once again saw many aster varieties including this lovely large-leaved variety. I also enjoyed all the bees I saw buzzing about, I'm particularly partial to ones that will stay still long enough to allow me to get a non-blurry photo! See: bee on goldenrod.
If you, my lovely reader, are also a student and getting back into groove at school: good luck to you and I hope that you are still able to find the time to take the long way home.
Also, don't worry that new commitments will cut into my time here with you and developing the compendium. I'm pretty good at balancing my time, usually, and look forward to introducing a new section on my site tomorrow. Stay tuned!
