On Monday we took a drive down into the Beaver Valley, driving past our previous home to have a look, and then down Bowle's Hill. The view straight ahead was spectacular, though I certainly haven't captured it well in these photos. I think the colour was a little past its best, but still surprised us at every turn!

I could have done to take my big camera, but my phone is so much more easily portable, so that would have to do. Together with the simple editing I can do as I upload the photos, I'm hoping for the best. And this was also a test of using Meaford Transit for some purpose other than medical - though you might say this was very good for my mental health!

The place to see fall colour here in Meaford is our local cemetery. Full of old Sugar Maples, it's just a glorious atmosphere of orange at this time of year. This is much more than a few photographs, for this was an adventure for me. I had the Meaford transit drop me off there after physio, I stayed and got a LOT of pictures, and then I rode all the way home - about 40 minutes. I've been looking forward to this adventure all summer!

As I drive around it seems that the tree leaves are turning fast now, most of them to yellow rather than red, but still there's a colourful beauty around us now that will only last for two or three weeks. These pictures are taken nearby but beyond our own street.

I keep thinking that it's a poor year for fall colour, but now it seems that lots of trees are changing. They're changing to yellow or orange rather than red though. You really have to search for trees with patches of red leaves. I now have lots of pictures, having spent an hour outside sweeping leaves and maple keys off the deck and patio, and yesterday having made a big expedition to our local cemetery - gorgeous at this time of year with all its old maples.

The fall colours seem to be much more muted, more yellows than red, harder to find and later than usual this year. We're halfway through October and there's been no frost yet - and none in the forecast. I found a total of three trees to get pictures of yesterday; most trees are simply still green! These are still just one of the original two trees I saw two days ago.
