October's Beauty

It's October in Ontario and truly one of the most beautiful times of the year to be here. The trees take centre stage and show off their gorgeous colours, the fields dress in coats of muted tones - gold, burnt umbre, purple and yellow, and there is just enough coolness in the air to help you sleep at night. I should mention the incredible abundance of produce. It is a real treat to the senses walking through the local market: bright orange pumpkins, peppers in all shapes and sizes, squash, potatoes, apples, apples and more apples, tomatoes and frothy stands of mums!

In a week's time we will be celebrating Thanksgiving here, and we reallyhave so much to be thankful for. You should come visit! There is always lots of food on the table and at least two pies for dessert!


  1. Beautiful! Where was picture #2 taken from?

  2. Picture #2 was taken from the top of a mountain in Westport, Ontario. Beautiful little town - highly recommend a visit. There is a Bakery there that makes fresh pumpkin tarts in the fall that are amazing - warm right out of the oven!

  3. Beautiful pics! You are right ... we do live in an incredibly beautiful area. I'm looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend!
