Visit to Springridge Farm to start the weekend. 

Before Covid19 Rob and I enjoyed low key, relaxing weekends periodically, during Covid19 I find I need them. The numbers have started to spike again where we live. We can't change what other people decide to do during these times, but we can control what we do. We still plan to enjoy our lives as much as we can by doing what we can safely. Here's a recap of our labour Day weekend.  

On Saturday we enjoyed a trip to Springridge Farm to pick up a few yummy goodies, including a wild Ontario Blueberry Pie. That was our dessert for the weekend. And we also enjoyed a delicious lunch from their front porch take out stand.   

My yummy breakfast from Toast on Bloor.

On Sunday, after a delicious breakfast on the "Toast on Bloor" sidewalk patio we went for our regular Sunday nature walk.

Taking time to stop and smell the flowers.

One of four Praying Mantis's I saw on our walk.

As most weekends when the weather is good, we enjoy spending time in our backyard. 

Our backyard sanctuary in September.

We sometimes make the squirrels work for their supper. 

Food for them, entertainment for us!

The Baltimore Orioles left us this past week for their journey south. We will seem them again next May.  We haven't seen a Ruby-throated Hummingbird in a few days, but will keep the feeders up til Thanksgiving weekend for any stragglers that pass through, we usually get a few.

The Red-breasted Nuthatches have returned to the yard. They don't migrate but they disappear for the summer. 

They Red-breasted Nuthatches have been enjoying the fountain in the yard. 

The holiday Monday was quite rainy, but we enjoyed binge watching a show on Netflix, Cobra Kai   and getting a few things done inside. A quiet but enjoyable weekend, and I see many more of them in the coming months.
