areas from Lake of Bays, Algonquin to Muskoka, Collingwood and Midland, and North Bay.
Road Trips North in Ontario
Easter falls during the first weekend in April.
Consider a spring road trip or drive
north. Spring in Ontario Canada is unique for its beauty, wildflowers, and
return of many species of birds, the beginning of fishing season, romantic
getaway weekends and the golf season.
Wildlife viewing is at its best before the foliage fills the forest floors.
Ontario Provincial Flower "The Trillium" is a Spring Flower
Trilliums in Bloom
One of the first
signs of spring is the number of spring flowers that begin to bloom, even before
all of the snow melts. It is good luck to make a wish when you see your first
spring wildflower. You make the wish for someone else, and all the joys of
spring will go to both you and the person you wished for. The Province of
Ontario has their official flower the Trillium. The Trillium grows wild and is
predominant throughout the woodlands and forests north of Toronto. This is a
truly remarkable flower, mostly white in colours but with hues of purples and
pinks with the odd pure purple coloured Trillium..
