Fall Colours

I love fall.  It's my favourite time of year.  I was born and raised in northern Ontario where a hot summer hovers around 21-22 Celcius, and humidity was rare.  At least they used to. 

I love the days now when the air is clear and temperature hovers around that old northern Ontario high.  And the colours!  Wow!  Every day I get to see beautiful hues of red, orange, yellow, bright and deep greens.  And there are still summer colours around.  The Oestospernum in my front yard are still blossoming in pretty shades of white to purples.  These are daisy like flowers with very full multiple stemmed plants.

The family has been busy working away on that back deck.  It has been a season long project with lots still to do.  The only problem with taking so long is that the layout has changed a few times, hopefully for the better.

Speaking of beautiful fall colours, here's one of my favourite pieces.  It fits right in.
