Our World, My World

 Happy Monday,

The NCR bike trail is the only trail open, which is some what close to us for a walk. It is a short drive away,  a nice trail for walking. I have posting often about our walks on the NCR trail. 

On this day we parked at the Bentley Springs, Parkton section of the trail. I heard a lot of birds, like the Northern Parula, various woodpeckers and we saw a couple of Mallards.


 This is a good time of the year for walking on the trail, there were a lot of wildflowers and different trees were blooming.


 I think this is the Bee Tree Run, it is close to the bike trail.




 We noticed a man using a stick trying to move this snake off the trail, he did not want the snake to be run over by a bike rider.  I think the snake did not like being moved, I stayed a distance away.



It looked like the snake was ready to strike.



A pretty tree blooming along the trail.


 A view of the NCR trail near the Bee Tree Preserve.



Take care, stay safe!

    Snakes will be coming out to sun themselves now the days are getting warmer. Best to just let them be, though the fellow had his heart in the right place the snake wouldn't know that! Love all the delicate blooms - that last looks like apple blossom to me. Have a great week! YAM xx

  4. I cannot imagine what it would be like coming across a snake when out walking (we have none here). It looks like a very pretty area for a walk though. Have a great day :)

  6. What beautiful photos Eileen.
    The snake is quite scary, fortunately such snakes do not occur here.
    Today the primary schools have reopened here, you can also go to the hairdresser and pedicure again, gyms remain closed until September 1.
    Best regards Irma

  7. It is just the correct time of the year and weather for a revitalizing walk, before sun starts beating too strong.
    Enjoy your trails.
    Have a nice new week ahead!

  9. I am pretty sure that snake is not venomous and I applaud the fellow who tried to get it to leave the trail.

    1. Hello David,
      I guess if the snake did not move on it's own, a bike rider may have hit it. Thanks for the comment. Enjoy your day!

  10. Loved the flowers - the snake I'm not so sure about. I'm not a snake person.

  12. Love your pictures! The snake sounds scary! Stay safe and healthy everyone ☺

  13. Nice pictures of your walk, but the snake would have made me run home in a flash!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The snake looks amazing. I love them. We've had all sorts of garter snakes out, but in our cold spell (~0 C.) they are hiding.
    Thank goodness for walking trails!

  15. That's a huge snake! I would not have liked to come across that while walking....

    It was a great day to be outside yesterday! Hope you had a nice Mother's Day.

    1. Yes, it was a great Mother's Day, we went for a walk. Thanks, enjoy your day!

  16. of course it was ready to strike, to move a snake just leave it alone and it will run. they don't like us anymore than we like them... it is a fine specimen but i would not want to walk past it. as far as i can see it is non lethal but still it could cause a bike to turn over and injure the perseon... I know you miss walking here, it truly is beautiful

    1. We were surprised to see this guy trying to move the snake, I think it would have moved anyway. Our trails have re-opened this weekend, YAY! Thanks and enjoy your day!

  17. Great to see a snake but good grief! It’s a biggie.

  18. I was so captivated by your first photos, that when I saw the snake I reacted with a squeal! Thank you for making my day! Please have a wonderful day, dear friend!

  23. I so enjoyed my virtual walk with you and seeing the area that the bike trail goes through. I would have quickly turned and left that snake to take his chances with the cyclists! Thanks for visiting my blog, stay safe.

  24. You are so lucky to have that trail near and still open! That is one big snake, Eileen!

  25. You are a bit behind us on spring. All of our trees have full leaves and the world is green. Glad you enjoyed seeing our float cabin home on Extreme Houseboats. They came up to the cabin to film for an entire day to tease it down to those few minutes. We were also on a French channel in Canada and got a full 15 minutes out of a full day shoot. It was fun to do, but that was back in about 2012. There hasn't been as much interest from film companies lately. - Margy

  28. What a lovely place to hike .... but that snake, I would be quite nervous to so close to take spics! Great post, Eileen. As always. Wish yoe a great week ahead!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beautiful photos, Eileen. I would be stepping back from that snake, nice photos of it though.
    Have a great day and new week.

    ReplyDelete
  30. That's a big beautiful snake. Yes, best to leave it alone as they grumpy sometimes. I've read that most people who get bit by snakes were messing the snake in some way.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love getting out on trails like that, especially if there is water. Such a nice variety of birds to see. I hate snakes and we've seen a few this Spring. I still don't want to stay home just because I see a snake though! lol Take care and have a good week!

  32. How beautiful and peaceful is that spot you chose for your exercise Eileen. A lovely array of wildflowers and trees (I love the name "Bee Tree Run". A bit of excitement thrown in as well with the snake business going on! All the very best xx

  33. Lovely pictures. Doesn't look crowded. Guess it's ok to be out and about.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi, Eileen. That's a cool close-up shot of the snake. It does look annoyed at being disturbed. Wonder what it may have been dreaming. I would've definitely looked for another trail if I saw that snake in my path. :-) Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a lovely trail! I'm glad that your foot didn't find that snake before the mad did! Although it looks to be a harmless rat snake. He does a good job of coiling and looking menacing, though!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I agree this is a great time of the year for walking and you have a great place for it.

  40. Eileen - this looks like a lovely walk. I am impressed that you can recognize birds from their calls - I am hopeless with that! Now flowers, those I can handle! The snake looks quite upset - is it poisonous? Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday! And belated Happy Mother's Day!

  41. I am so glad we don't have snakes here, they give me the creeps but it looks like a really nice walk.

    ReplyDelete
  42. So lovely! And cool snake shots.

    ReplyDelete
  43. looking at the snakes head and eyes I think this is not a snake with venom. I think the man did good to try to move it. In Sweden ALL cold blooded creatures are endangered and on the red list. We are allowed to move them, but not kill them. This one looks almost like one of ours we call Snok. It is harmless and feeds mostly on fish. And, they have a personality, they are curious. :)

  44. Perfect capture at the Snake Eileen! That last trail you shared is so beautiful and would love to walk on that!

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's nice to walk on a path that is usually used for bicycle trails ..., beautiful natural scenery, Eileen. I

    t's just that I'm afraid of snakes :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. they are not my favorites but the pictures of the snake are stunning!! very nice of the man to try to move it!! the wild flowers are so pretty, growing, healthy with not help from man!! the second to last picture, looks like apple blossoms...i'm sure it's not, but i have photographed them many times and they sure do look like that!!! that's a lovely path!!!

  47. It is always a pleasure to stop by your blog and check out the latest post. You have another excellent post with this one! I enjoyed the contrast of the beautiful flowers and the scary snake. : - ) The photos you take on your walks inspire me. Thank you for that Eileen! Re your comment on my last post on my blog … I left a reply for you there. I'm so happy to hear that you and hubs have been doing well and staying healthy. Take good care, stay safe, and have a happy week ahead.

  50. Hello Eileen,
    indeed we still stay with us and in the Netherlands there are also several parks and forests locked. I really like your photos of the trees. Especially the one with the water.
    That snake is quite scary and also very big!
    Be careful,
    Greetings, Helma

    but I don't like snakes

  53. The blossom is beautiful. I would give that snake a wide berth. It looks so big.

  54. "I think the snake did not like being moved, I stayed a distance away."
    A good idea! I would have done too!

    Lovely photographs Eileen, thank you.

  57. Such a lovely trail! I’m not phobic about snakes, but I wouldn’t poke one with a stick. Gosh. You got nice pictures from a safe distance (haha, not hard to maintain social distancing from a snake). Stay safe and well ... thanks for everything you do.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Another pretty hike! Im glad the man moved the snake, could have caused a problem for sure....good shots of the action.

  59. That’s quite scaring shots on the snake and nice of the man risking to move the snake out of path. The NCR trail is inviting with all the pretty blossoms! Love it
