I've been spending a lot of time at Colony Farm Regional Park lately. Mainly because it's a quick 10 minute drive from where I live and I can get a quick nature fix.
The summer weather is almost here. So many plants are blooming and there is new life sprouting up all over the place. Makes me feel part of the living world to just go and listen to birds telling each other where the next great yummy treat is waiting.
This area is so full of life it humbles my senses. I was walking through an open field and had a coyote run within a few dozen yards of me. Don't know which one of us was more surprised. Beautiful animals .. shame we have squished their habitat to these small areas to have to exist in. I would love to know a time when these magnificent animals could run free and not to worry about getting hit by cars. Or having to make their next meal on Fido's and Fluffy's from the back yard to exist. Given half a chance Mother Nature can live in harmony and rapore with the essense of life. Human man peoples just keep mucking everything up.
I guess I need to get out more.
