Under the Wellington bridge is this little gem, when it’s not windy you can capture a beautiful reflection of the side of the Fairmont Chateau Laurier with the local UNESCO site the Rideau Canal. Have you been for a walk alongside the Rideau Canal? It’s the perfect area for a nightly walk. #discoveron #ottawa #explorecanada
"What makes you vulnerable, makes you beautiful."
"To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wildflower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."
Red clover (Trifolium Pratense )
Red clover is an edible wildflower. Its leaves can be tossed into a salad or used in tea. The preferable part of this wild edible is the flower. Red clover is considered the tastiest of all clovers.
One web page recommends not to eat too many as some people experience bloating. I wonder how many is considered too many.
On a cautionary note, I recommend that everyone should pass on eating clover found in the wild, such as roadsides or weedy meadows. Red clover is subject to bacterial as well as fungal diseases such as red clover rust. Other problems could include the ingestion of parasitic nematodes (roundworms) and viruses, not to mention being subjected to long legged spiders like shown here.

Sit relax and enjoy a peaceful moment on a beautiful bench!🌤🌼🌤
The Fogo Island Inn is one of those feel-good stories. It was built by a Newfoundlander who made it big in the tech boom. Now, she’s returned to her roots and is giving the local economy a boost. They also make sure that visitors get a real taste of island life. I had a wonderful lunch there dining on local, fresh shrimp and a home made molasses tart.
As the storm moved it was the perfect opportunity to capture this view. The landscapes in Newfoundland have been out of this world. I’m fortunate to have returned and explored more of this culture, life and land. Photo taken at Petty Harbour, the start of Dead mans trail. #explorecanada #explorenl #lovestjohns
