Leaves are on the trees and hedgerows are blooming. Blooms line the roads, trails, banks and shorelines of streams, ponds and sea.
Sometimes the blooms are unidentifiable in a distant row of trees
At times, blooming trees line the trails
and one can identify some of them. The pink-white colours of the Wild Apple blooms make them easy to distinguish.
Pin Cherry trees are everywhere and are covered in blooms.
Mountain Ash is blooming now as well, its leaves reminding one of the orange berries to follow.
Sumac is distinctive too, clusters of creamy blooms erupting from rose coloured buds.
On a rare occasion, an old homestead has lilac trees along a trail.
Some of the prettiest blooms right now though are on the Choke Cherry trees which are everywhere as well.
My favourite photos were from the boardwalk by the sea.
Nature in late spring on Prince Edward Island is a feast for the senses.
Question from the post on Thunder Cove by Boud at https://fieldfen.blogspot.com/
Does the sand stain the way red clay does?
The red clay of the island does stain sneakers and clothes. We use an old towel or blanket sitting on a red sand beach, especially in the wet sand. However, not all beaches are on the island have red sand, such as the beach at Cavendish and white sand beaches on the south shore of the island. The colour of the sand depends on the rate of erosion in an area.
