We visit some Heritage Roads every season. The old red dirt roads pass through the countryside and highlight various aspects of Prince Edward Island’s geography and history. While I love the changes from summer to autumn along these roads, the spring to summer changes are just as remarkable.
One of our favourite Heritage Roads, the Millman Road is in the centre of the island. My husband and I walked the road on May 22nd and took photos at various vantage points along the way. Then we returned on May 29th.
A scene which resembled a tunnel of grey walls with a red dirt floor on the 22nd,
was alive with the new green of late spring on the 29th.
Each repeated scene was the same. The grey
was replaced by the glorious green.
From the landmarks, you could tell it was the same area,
but the green changed the look completely.
Trees are busy opening leaves so they can do important work over the next four months. We will return later this week to the scenes and compare them to last week.
Summer is nigh.
