Wet spring in the Holland Marsh

 Photos by Barry Wallace
Farmers in the Holland Marsh are facing a wet start to the growing season as water covers hundreds of acres in certain parts of Ontario's salad bowl.   The melt-water, followed by rain, is not that deep, but getting onto the land is going to be later than growers would like.   The photo above looks north from Weston Road across a portion of the marsh, on the west side of Hwy. 400.   The three photos below were taken from the intersection of Hanemaayer Lane and Concession Rd. 2, looking southward.   The high ground on the horizon is the King Ridge, part of the Oak Ridges Moraine.   There was still a thin layer of ice on the water, at 10 a.m., Wednesday,  when the photos were taken. 

Please comment if you wish.
