Fred has been walking the shore while I paint, finding Alder with open catkins, clam shells (Elliptio complanata and Lampsilis radiata), and returning with hands full of Watercress to plant at home. Now we must depart for our evening of listening for Chorus Frogs. It is 17C, so it should be a good night for the little "creakers" to be singing in full chorus.
Fred says that my painting site is between the Yacht Club and the other sewage-treatment beach where he and Jennifer explored in 1999, and where we added invasive Garlic Mustard in 2010 to the known flora of Renfrew County.
