Hello Beautiful

Mother nature sure knows how to usher in a new year with flare!  Over the last two days, many of us in central Ontario – in the District of Parry Sound, have been treated to a glorious new year’s with frosted snow covered trees, roads and lakes.  Everything sparkles!

Welcome 2019!  So far, so beautiful!

A Dog & His Dock: A love affair

We put a new dock in this August, and Linc, the ball hound has claimed it as his most favourite place!

Nothing like jumping off the dock after a ball!

Loving this dock mom!

Early Autumn, a time for contemplation

The leaves are gradually changing colour, lighting up the early Autumn landscape with splashes and swaths of glorious orange, gold, yellow, red, burgundy, crimson, brown and maroon splendour.  In a week or so, the forests, roadsides and countryside will be at their peak, on fire with intense colour.  Mother Nature’s fashion show: my favourite time of year is here again.  I am grateful for the opportunity to enjoy another Autumn in central Ontario.

Around every corner is yet another inspirational scene.

Yellow daisy-like flowers spring up every Fall along this section of our backroad.  I couldn’t resist taking a video of them as they were gently swaying in the early afternoon autumn breeze.

They are bewitching in the sunlight, so bright and cheery.  Maybe the flowers are nature’s way of reminding those who pass by to slow down and enjoy them for a moment for winter is on it’s way soon.

Marshland, grasses and ground cover is equally stunning this time of year.

Soon winter will be here and the landscape will be blanketed in snow. But, I’ll be content to revive these memories of this Fall’s colour show.

Such reflection will see me through the cold winter, through the new, bright greens of spring and, God willing, eventually to the enjoyment of the splendour of another Autumn.

Lilacs in Parry Sound

I so love this time of year, when spring-floweing shrubs and trees explode with colour along streets and sidewalks, and in so many gardens. Who can resist iheir intoxicating fragrances as they waft gently through the air. Lilacs are my favourite.
