This is an old neighbourhood in Hamilton, Ontario (Canada) – named for one o’ the largest properties located there – Ravenscliffe. Nestled at the foot of “Hamilton Mountain” (part of the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve), the homes range through many architectural styles and eras seldom seen today in their original renderings. Many were built by wealthy Scots families who funded much of the early growth of Hamilton.
This is the beauty of Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana (US). Thanks to “extended family”, Captain Wendy Wilson-Billiot, for sharing her home and her love of the Wetlands with so many people. Follow her blog for more on life in the Louisiana Bayou – and visit for a truly educational Tour, Fishing Charter or the ultimate “Bayou Woman Adventure”!
America’s Wetlands are under attack – and have been for about 100 years. Our most valuable resource and the source of life itself – freshwater – is being infused with saltwater from storm surges, land loss (due to our own greed and stupidity), invasive species and pollution. Nowhere is this more obvious, or more important, than South Louisiana. People have lived on the Bayous of Terrebonne Parish for over 5 centuries, yet in a mere hundred years oil & gas “exploration” has destroyed near 1/3 of the entire the ecosystem in the southern end of the state! Places where people once farmed for generations next to a pristine freshwater lake are now open water; the lake a mere memory of the name with no land left to define it and saltwater to replace it.
It’s not everyday you can photograph something this rare & unusual…presently on display (and for sale) at The Spiritorium – A compendium of Knowledge & Apothecary
Nosfurrytooth…Sciurus Carolinensis Sanguinarius…the legendary Vampyre Squirrel!
Stories told to terrify children (and unwelcome visitors) in the Carpathian Mountain region of Romania mention the vampir veveriță (vampyre squirrel) – a mutated Gray Squirrel that suffers from albinism, likely due to it’s tendency to hunt only at night. Gray Squirrels are not native to Romania, but have become an invasive species spreading across Europe from the UK. Grey Squirrels carry the squirrelpox virus which is deadly to the native Red Squirrels but does not affect the host.
This extremely rare creature was allegedly mounted for the infamous Dr. Moreau and found it’s way into a private collection. It has never before been publicly displayed!
Named the “Comfort Maple” for the family whose land this has been since 1816 (and who donated this small plot to the region), this tree is believed to be the oldest Sugar Maple in Canada – approximated at 500 years! It is surrounded by farmland and was officially sanctioned for continued preservation in 1961 by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority.The tree is over 80 feet tall (125 feet at the crown) and the trunk is at least 20 feet around at the base. The branches spread out over 20 feet in every direction.
