Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Tiny Beauty

This is what you see when you spend some time looking down. Which I have been doing a lot of this week.

The beauty of the woodland violets, and their even smaller more delicate white cousins have taken over in areas near the lake, and parts of the lawn.

Ferns are beginning to unfold. Ants are busy, and will be even busier when the thunderstorm rolls through.  Strawberries are blooming all across the lawn.

Yes, we`ve got dandelions, and to be frank, I`m delighted. They provide food for the dazzlingly lovely American goldfinches, and since we would not be without the one, we need to put up with the other.

The crabapple tree, and it`s partnered plum tree are both coming into glorious bloom outside my door. The air, when you step out and draw breath, is heavy with their perfume, and the hum of the bees hard at work in the sweetness of the blossom. It will take the whole summer before we enjoy the fruits of the crabapple tree...

But, each to its season. We can`t keep ahead of the asparagus, springing out of the ground with almost lightning speed.
