Autumn 2013 – Ontario Canada

Today may just have been the last sunny day of fall…but I hope not! The colours have been lovely- and the temperatures too. Everything has been crisp and clear. I love it! “They” tell us we are in for a long period of rain starting this weekend. I hope “they” are wrong because there is plenty of work to be done in the days ahead no matter how wet or cold things are.

Here are photos I took of some of the plants I love in their autumn “costumes”.
