With the good weather (until Tuesday!) I've been enjoying getting out around town. I don't take as many photos as I used to, but when I see something interesting I do snap a shot. So here's a selection of recent interesting pictures.

Back in August we also went to Collingwood and decided to stop and see the museum. We had arranged to meet my cousin for a quick visit out on the pier in Collingwood, but as we left town she sent an urgent message 'No! No! It's next week not this week!' Well, we were already in the car so we decided to drive to Collingwood anyway, and make an outing of it, which we did. We did eventually meet her the next week.
The Collingwood Museum is actually the old train station - alas but it was closed that day. Never-the-less we looked around outside and enjoyed ourselves. Some interesting things to see.
The old Northern Railway ran north from Toronto through Stayner, Collingwood and Thornbury to Meaford where it ended right down at the harbour. Most of it is the Georgian Trail today. I've always thought that Meaford, even the Meaford Museum, totally neglects the railway as part of its history, so I was glad to see the emphasis on the railway here.

The old Ormsby family garden centre was sold and purchased by a new young couple who have made great progress in renovating the operation. They've not only fixed up the almost dilapidated buildings, but they've brought in a good range and quality of plants. Mrs. F.G., who is a very picky shopper at plant nurseries, is very impressed, so you know it must be good.

I find it hard to believe, but a few leaves are showing signs of colour already! It seems early to me, but I guess it's inevitable, nothing like the second week of October, but it's interesting to watch as the process unfolds every year.

I have missed doing my post on the wildflowers of the roadsides (otherwise known as weeds to some dedicated manicurists) this summer. The main reason is that the un-mowed stretches of roadside I counted on for finding them have been taken over and mowed by people who like to manicure things too much! I've been left noticing tiny little bits of roadside where there might be a flower or two, and scrolling back through two months of photos to find individual pictures.
