Forest/ Nature Notes

Last Monday in the York Regional Forest

The weather was cool but beautiful last Monday, perfect for a walk in the forest. Oh, and perfect for riding horseback too, as you can see in the largest square of this mosaic.  Moving clockwise: dried and curled fern (most ferns are still green but this variety has retired for the year), Pringle's aster (Symphyotrichum pilosum), Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) that has turned a vibrant red,  a mauve-coloured New England aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae), and yellow leaves on small shrub (not sure what)..

Beautiful shots from your autumn world. My Virginia creeper is finally starting to change more too but not as much as yours. I used to ride horses as a girl and still recall those days when I see a shot like the one in your post.

Lovely photos. We haven't quite gotten to the cool part of the year, here in the southwest desert!

I bet the horse likes it too in the woods.

It's interesting how similar your foliage is to that which we have here. We are a little further north so Fall is well under way.
