Oct 19/ Nature Notes

This week in south-central Ontario

The largest square: In some places the trees are bare and leaves line the ground below. Moving clockwise: asters are still in bloom; red haws hang on their branches; witch hazel swing in the breeze; fox grapes are ready to be eaten by wildlife; and many trees are still showing colour

Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

Autumn is approaching on quiet feet, slowly. Isn't it lovely?

Kate said...

Autumn is indeed quiet most of the time, but is a forerunner to a nastier period...ole' man winter!

I dislike the wild grapes as their vines get tangled up in everything.

Great series of photos though, very Autumnal

Stunning collage!

Kathy said...

I like those red haws. Here we have black ones. I think the old-timers used to make jelly from them.

Your collages are always a treat - and a quick way to give us a taste of life as it is in your neck of the woods.

Re your comment Stone Creek about the community having "spirit." I think what you meant is that the community has "spirits!" Boo! :-)

Lovely..witch hazel is in my skin care and now I know it doesn't grow in a bottle... about hawk migration. I don't know much about it and want to research it as there is a counting point about an hour from here.. Not that I would want to stand for hours with a pair of binocs looking skyward, but at least I could be more aware...Michelle

Nice Autumn collage!

Lovely shots - autumn tones are so photogenic.

Barb said...

Lovely shots. The autumn colours are so much more saturated in your area than here is southern California.
