Hole Punch

I observed this cloud phenomena, called a hole punch, over South Surrey this morning as I was walking Basty.  Apparently they occur when supercooled moisture is triggered to crystallize and fall.  The crystallization is thought to be triggered by passing aircraft.

CB Affair

Not much of an affair, just a pleasant walk at CB (but the title was catchy, so I used it).  Saw this very cool weathered log.  Basty is not up to jumping or climbing these days, so I placed him on one end and snapped a couple.

Odd Fungus

Not sure what to make of it; I don’t believe I have ever seen mushrooms quite like this.  They are growing en mass in the two new Daffodil gardens at Elgin Trail.  The soil is fresh compost laid down last Fall; wherever the city got the soil from, it came with spores at no extra charge..!!

Thom & Marcus

A couple of regulars on Elgin Trail.  Marcus is a young Bouvier, a cattle herding breed from France.  A giant compared to Basty.

It was a beautiful Spring morning; sun streaming down; Daffodil flowers peeking through; birds in full voice.  It is the time of year that reminds people why they live in the Fraser Valley.

May I be the kind of person Basty thinks I am.
