Changing Colours

Even though we haven't had an overnight frost yet, the colours in the trees are starting to change.



The yellows and oranges are starting to show, but with below freezing temperatures expected tonight, we'll soon be seeing the vivid reds of the maples.


The Eldred King Tract area of York Region Forest was full of walkers and their dogs and even some horses today. Many families were foraging for edible mushrooms, and all were enjoying the mild weather before going home to their Canadian Thanksgiving turkey dinners.
I walked from the parking area all the way to the pond and back, using my walking stick as the ground is pretty uneven. The new hip is working pretty well these days!

I am so enjoying seeing the arboreal fireworks on your side of the world. And very glad your new hip is working well.

I do envy you the fall flora! Nothing like it. We get a taste, but not until late November or December. I don't envy what comes after fall up there, though. Been there, done that. :)

No frost here yet but much colour.

There WAS a frost in cottage country, to it was more advanced there.

It must feel good to get out and about like that.

I've been a terrible blogger, what did i just ready, a new hip! I better catch up. I'm happy to read that you're exercising it well with beautiful fall walks.

Lovely pictures. Fall prepares us for the dreariness of winter

Hi Shammickite - thanks for popping over to my blog to see Ellen Terry and her beetle-wing dress ... yes beetle - not Beatle!

Lovely colours and I'm so glad your hip is working fine - I had mine done 20 months ago ... wonderful place to exercise you've got ...

Cheers Hilary

I'm so happy your hip is doing well. What a difference it will be to get around freely.
Even though we really don't have Seasons here in the Sacramento area we do have some trees that love to get dressed in their Autumn finery.
They are just beginning to change.
I do love this time of year.
