Northumberland County

Spent the day yesterday in Ontario’s granola belt. Some photos. Let me know if want to see more of this kind of thing, or should I stick exclusively to the nursey stuff?

Port Hope’s main street. For my American readers, it’s an old Loyalist (read Tory) town, settled just after the American revolution. They take historical conservation very seriously here.

Trilliums. Don’t remember ever seeing them in bloom so early.

Victoria Hall, Cobourg. Another Loyalist town.

    I love Port Hope. My grandmother & great-grandmother lived there. They had a boarding house/catering business.

    The trillium are our pretty early with the warmth in the north. P.S. Since trillium is a Latin word, the plural is trillium!

    Loved your photos! Great one of the trilliums in bloom. A nice break from reality to view what you saw! Love that area of Ontario, the old buildings and just getting back to nature.
    Thumbs up from me!

    Beautiful photos. I don’t know about the nursey stuff but you sure make Northumberland County look like an appealing place to be. I know it well. We were just in Grafton area last week. Thanks for sharing.
