The Confederation Trail on Prince Edward Island is the old railbed, reclaimed after the railway was abandoned in 1989. It cuts through the countryside, fields and forests, across streams and rivers. Near our home, the trailway provides a glimpse of the progress of spring.
The fields are being ploughed now, prepared for planting after a wet fall and winter.
Fiddleheads are erupting along the sides of the trail.
Pussy willows are in bloom.
Many of the trees are in bloom now, before the leaves erupt. On this mid afternoon spring day, the moon shines above us.
Shadows provide art for those who care to stop and take it in.
The trail appears to go on forever over the gentle countryside.
