This is the fire team. They set fires. They set controlled fires and they know what they are doing. If they say move, you move. They do prescribed burns on the other remaining prairie areas in Ontario. This year Eleanor arrived with something new--lace on her overalls.

High Park is 161 acres in downtown Toronto. It is an endangered prairie. Most of the prairie was destroyed when North America was settled. The tallgrass oceans now are fields of corn. This little remnant is being restored by volunteers like myself. It is a wide open space of tall grasses, flowers and black oak trees. Before anyone lived here, this burned regularly. The plants require it to survive and flourish. Each spring parts of High Park are burned. I like plants and I like fire. My idea of a good time.

I spend a lot of time looking at plants up close.

Entering the Swamprose Macro Phase. Prepare to be annoyed.

All I need now are growing things, other than moss.
