One again, Sue has put out the call for the Colours of the month. It is definitely autumn here. The nights have cooled down substantially. To the north of us, they've already has frost warnings. We've been lucky so far and it's not dropped below 3 or 4C. The fall colours are starting as well. Not quite as brilliant yet as an hours drive north of here, but starting none the less.
A single Maple tree, turning colour and already losing it's leaves. By the time the rest turn, this poor tree will have lost it's finery.
A swan in the city of Stratford. The Thames river runs through it, with beautiful park lands on either side. There are a huge number of swans who live here, taken care of by the city I believe.
A Mallow plant. This one blooms in the late summer, well into the autumn. It's spectacular colouring is welcome this time of year.
The last of the pie pumpkins. They are all harvested now and I've baked pie, frozen the excess and given pumpkins away. I'll do these up later this week, but am enjoying their colour on the back deck for the moment.
A brilliantly coloured Maple Leaf. It's deep red colour caught my eye from a distance. It's autumn here and for a few short weeks, the colours will be gorgeous.
