A Gift From the Weather Gods

the last five days have felt like the end of summer and not the beginning of winter

We have been blessed with the most beautiful weather and the autumn colours are still with us. What a glorious combination. I’ve been walking in my sandals and short sleeve shirts and a lightweight jacket when the sun starts to go down.

Buckets of Colour

I love autumn. The cooler temperatures appeal to me and visually I find the colours breathtaking. I also love the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables and how people use pumpkins, peppers and squash to decorate their porches and storefronts. Here are a few of my favourite bursts of colour and some creative pots of plants in the neighbourhood and beyond.

October Colours – Yellow

thanks to City Sonnets for hosting October Colours and letters https://citysonnet.wordpress.com/2020/10/01/october-colors-and-letters-2/

I love autumn colours and I had every intention of posting all the yellows of Autumn in a future post but when this challenge came up I decided that today was as good a day as any. Some of these photos were taken in the neighbourhood parks and others were from my walk through High Park yesterday.
