October 12/ Nature Notes

Central Ontario last Sunday

Our family celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving on Saturday, then three of us piled into the car for a roadtrip north to see colourful leaves. Temperature-wise, it was a summer-like day. (But we had had a frost a couple of days before, although not a killing one.)  Along the way we spotted: (in the largest square) a frog sitting on the edge of a bog enjoying the warm air.

Moving clockwise: rose hips, some of which were dried and shriveled up; a rose that was a bit ragged looking but still blossoming; a black-eyed Susad that had likely been hit by a light frost; colourful oak leaves; and a green, course-to-the-touch moss.

Great collage, love the frog and the rose hips. I think Thanksgiving in October is a wonderful idea. Maybe I'll start celebrating the Canadian Thanksgiving also. That'd be ok right?

That frog is so well hidden I'm surprised you spotted it. Wonder fall colors in your collage.
