The weather forecast is for snow tonight, so before the leaves are all blown away or covered up, here are today’s colours. *Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost Nature’s first green is gold,Her hardest hue to hold.Her early leaf’s a flower;But only so an hour.Then leaf subsides to leaf.So Eden sank to grief,So dawn […]
Today it is raining and the rain is adding vibrancy to the fall colours. This morning I stepped out to mail a letter and noticed how lovely the garden wall looked. In case you were wondering, I don’t use those stairs because there is an elevator to get me to and from the ground floor […]
Hemer Provincial Park, near Cedar, British Columbia, is one of many delightful parks in this area. Today some friends from the newcomers group introduced me to the trails here, and we enjoyed a four kilometre walk among the trees.

Before the wind takes all the leaves away, I got a few more pictures of the lovely colours. Enjoy!

Tuesday was very windy, but it was still a pleasure to see the autumn colours in the North Saskatchewan River valley from the lookouts at the top and bottom of the funicular.
This week, we are beginning to see some glorious fall colours. Right across the street from our house is the first tree in our street to turn yellow, and I was pleased to get a picture of it with the sun shining through the leaves. In the last few years, I have taken lots of […]
Since I suffered a bad fall last spring, I have been trying to gradually get back to my former walking strength. I’m not there yet, but I’m making good progress. I am up to about two miles (3.2 km) now before I need a rest. This week my walks took me to Borden Park in […]
