By Win Wachsmann. As I was strolling in my neighbourhood this August long weekend, I came across an amazing sight.
A field of bright yellow blooms covered a large expanse of grass as far as the eye could see.
These flowers had obviously not sprung up overnight after that first refreshing rain in 30 days.
The field was around a local school. What was going on?
Was the local school board instituting a policy of rewilding?
A return to nature?
An attempt to increase local biodiversity to make up for paving the TransCanada Trail??
Perhaps somebody was going to harvest the leaves for exotic salads?
Or were they simply following the long time policy of the Parks and Recreation department of not maintaining the grounds under their “care”?
Inquiring minds want to know.
