Street Walker

Why yes, now that you ask, I do think I have become something of a street walker now that the Fall is showing her full colours. And who wouldn’t become a walker when the weather has turned nice again, and we have all this colour to enjoy?

So of course I’ve been out there taking afternoon walks around my neighbourhood and discovered more than these majestic looking trees, I discovered a Tim Hortons up by the Bois du Coulonge. What? Oh, sorry, for those of you not in the know, Tim Hortons is a coffee chain, and this one is attached to a garage right opposite one of my favourite parks.

Anyway, I digress. I didn’t make it into the park but will try later this week to go take more tree portraits while the weather holds, and the leaves are still attached.

Twisted Roots

Fall is, indeed, letting us know she’s arrived for the season. Yesterday afternoon despite the cool weather the sky was mostly blue and I took a chance walk out, around the neighbourhood, to look at the trees.

Some have already begun to turn and a few have lost any number of leaves already due to the changed, blustery weather. But it was the roots of several trees down one street nearby where I live, that I love to walk down, whose tangle of roots caught my attention.

You have to agree, they’re amazing and, I wonder, do fairies live here? What do you think?

Wednesday’s Wildlife

To get us over hump day, today, I’m sharing a couple of single shots I have of a few friends I made while walking around the Bois de Coulonge the other day. I’m always surprised by the sheer variety of bird life there is in the park, never mind all the other little critters.
