Travel Theme: Trees

I am so fortunate to live in an area that has many trees. Many of which are protected because they grow along the Niagara Escarpment, in the Niagara Parks Commission, on historical properties or in one our Provincial Parks. Many others are tended to and fussed over because they give us fruit. Niagara is often referred to as ‘the fruit belt” because we have an unique ecosystem being tucked in between two great lakes with the escarpment running through the area.

I love how one of the park’s neighbours added the bridge under this willow tree.           During the spring, I love seeing the blossoms wake up in the Niagara Parks Commission. And the contrast between the various tree barks with their surroundings.

Here’s a unique pine featured in one of the gardens in historic Niagara on the Lake. The maple is one on our street but it shows another exciting thing about our Ontario trees… the amazing colours during Fall.

This last photo was taken at Rock Point Provincial Park. It shows one of the more important reasons to protect our trees. They are homes. home in a tre Would you like to share some trees? Kindly visit Where’s My Backpack? for the challenge information.
