Colours of Fall and an Anniversary

Autumn.... my favourite time of year. This is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. We have our thanksgiving celebrations while the weather is still sunny, not like our cousins south of the border who wait until almost the end of November when it can be cold and rainy, and even snowy some years.
This Thanksgiving weekend has been full of glorious sunshine and blue skies, something that I am definitely thankful for.
I love the colours of autumn, the golds and reds and yellows. The leaves are late turning this year, but there's still lots of colour around. These photos need no explanations.

And an Anniversary!
Congratulations are due to YoungerSon and The Bride. Eight years ago they were married in front of friends and family in a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Royal Botanical Gardens. The sun shone that day too. Now their family consists of three energetic little children (two boys and a girl), a bouncy golden doodle (TessaDog), living in a house that they have made some crazy construction changes to and made their own. And they are still smiling!

Congratulations! May you always be as happy as you are now.


  1. Hooray for Autumn.
    Love the happy smiles on the bridal couple - and the fact that the smiles continue.

  2. The fall colors are gorgeous---as is the bride and groom---and so happy they are still smiling!!

  3. I just saw a funny post on FB: two TG photos -- ours was a glorious autumn photo while theirs was of snow and slush.

  4. A Very Happy Thanksgiving to you, my dear......
    Those photo's are GORGEOUS!!! The whole feeling of Fall is all there! And Congrats to your 'Younger Son & Bride'.....

    And right now, here in Los Angeles we are having our usual September HEAT---And I mean HOT HOT HEAT!!! This too shall pass....maybe. (lol)

  5. Just a wonderful collection of fall images.

  6. Lovely images! It's had to beat fall;s beauty!

  7. Anniversary Congratulations to your son and his wife.
    The leaves are late changing this year. The Maples are glorious, but most everything else is still green.

  8. This is a beautiful collection of images...such rich and sultry colors. Love the one of the lake with the tree reflections. Congrats to your son and daughter-in-law!

  9. You really can't beat autumn colours and reflections, glorious! Congrats to the happy couple.

  10. I forgot that 30 miles from here it is Thanksgiving.

  11. Congratulations to your son and his wife Anniversary! They are a beautiful couple.
    Your fall leaves are beautiful and the last photo is refreshing. Here, I am waiting for leaves to change, they are still green.
    Have a good new week.

  12. What a fine couple, congratulations to them both.
    Was this the son I remember writing a story for the family magazine about spacemen all those years ago? How time flies.

  13. Congratulations to your YoungerSon and his Wife!
    The couple is just gorgeous!

    A Very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  14. Beautiful fall photos! Your colours are stunning. Belated thanksgiving and anniversary wishes!

    ...we had to move because our landlords were selling the unit we lived in. I was kinda grumpy about it at first, but our new place is turning out to be a lot more fabulous than I originally thought.
