Toronto Botanical Garden #1
Yesterday (Saturday) I attended an all-day meeting at the Toronto Botanical Garden. This part of Toronto is at least one growing zone warmer than East Gwillimbury but I was still amazed to see the colour still on the trees and shrubs there.
Toronto Botanical Garden #2
Japanese maples were a bright red. I'm jealous because Japanese maples are lucky to survive a year a two here in E.G. before they succumb to our cold winters. Darn!!
While in the meeting I could see S-N-O-W falling on these beautiful trees! North of the city, we had actually woken up to snow on the ground. I guess it really IS November!
Leaves that have fallen onto some slanted north-facing windows
Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.
The colors are splendid!
Beautiful colours and the leaves on the window makes an interesting shot.
i love the contrast of the green and the brilliant colors in the first photo. I assume after the snow they will all fall off.. i like that leaf stuck to the window, looks like it is suspended in space
The maple are a gorgeous red.. beautiful colors and images.. Have a happy Sunday!
I especially love the intense red colored leaves. Beautiful images!

I don't recall a botanical garden in Toronto. Beautiful shots!
Those colors are amazing!
Gorgeous colors and superb captures as always!! Looks a lot like it does here in Oregon!! Sometimes too chilly, but always beautiful!! Have a great day!!
The snow missed us, thank Heaven!! I love the colours in the trees! I wonder why Japanese maples don't live long for you, when there are several in the neighbourhood here... We are further north than you are, after all...
Ah! Sorry to have to say this but I'm looking forward to seeing snow in Ontario! :-)
Yesterday was quite literally a summer day here. Nice but way too warm and still we don't have such lovely colours...
Explosions of colour!
Beautiful shots of these fiery colors! I love Japanese maples because of their incredible red shades. We have one right in front of our house and I love to look at it from our kitchen and bedroom.
Nice fall colors!
It is SO beautiful!!! I just love Botanical Gardens! Our nearest one is almost an hour and a half away, but I try to go twice a year. Oh NO, snow!!!! It might as well be winter here, it is in the thirties and lots of wind. Now it will be dark at 4:30 thanks to the awful time change last night. We set the clocks back one hour.
I think there are even more leaves still on the trees further downtown closer to the lake. We saw just a few flakes blowing about yesterday and that was enough. ;-)
The intense color on those trees is amazing. Yes,it really is November and the snow will be on the ground before long,I'm sure.
Yes, time and snow will fly.
Lovely colours. So soon it will by white.
Gorgeous colors and love the last shot!
It snowed here Saturday morning--just flurries really.
The red maple is very pretty. Enjoyed each photo.
I've read that even looking at pictures of nature can calm a person. I'm glad i found your blog because I've been able to try this theory out and it works! Of course it helps that the pictures here are stunning.
What a beautiful place to spend a day. I bet you had a ton of fun taking pictures.
That's sad to lose the Japanese Maples. I like them a lot. We have one in my backyard. The climate here gets cold too... we're in the Chicago area. I "shudder" to think how cold it must get up there to lose those trees. Keep thinking warm thoughts!!
REALLY nice photos! I really like the one with the leaves on the window.
Snow? It still feels like summer here.
LOVE the colours :)
