Sweetman's Secret Garden

My niece reminded me of a magical garden that I haven't seen in years and which she discovered recently. It is the product of a man who dedicated his time and money over years to reclaim barren waste to beauty. Please visit this site to see what has happened to this quiet love.

Life Returns

Water and a few days shows the roots that survived fire under the protection of the earth erupting . The challenge of survival conquered . The labour of recovery begins.

Thank You to the Fire Fighters

Timmins 9 of many fires in North Eastern Ontario.

Still Extreme

There are many readers who want to keep abreast of the fire situation in Northern Ontario . They are still fighting these fires, and will be for some time yet.

The rains allowed for a few of these fires to be brought under control. But the nature of  'under control' is that under the right conditions , these fires can start again. Lightning that came with the rains also started new fires. There is a long , hard summer ahead for the fire fighting crews in Northern Ontario .

 If you want to keep closer to the news on  forest fires and the battles fought everyday make theses sites your source of information.
