Monday Evening Walks Reminders
                
                                Monday, August 25, RBG from York Road
                                Monday, September 1, Waterfront Trail from Harbourfront

             As usual, I am still going out almost every Friday afternoon. If you are interested in joining me give me 24 hours notice so I can give you the meeting place. I usually, but not always, start at Cherry Hill Gate and go on to the Arboretum and/or the Waterfront Trail but there are exceptions.

		Ron passed away on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012. Because he kept records of
early and peak blooming times for nearly 30 years and then passed along his summaries
to me for this site, I plan on leaving his last summary here. Below is a small sample of
what the whole summary looks like:
