walk in the park


Another glorious fall day today! A walk in the park was absolutely essential. It was amazing how many leaves were covering the paths and they were delightfully dry and rustling underfoot. So often they are soggy and slippery by this time here on the wet coast. I felt like a school child kicking up leaves and remembering Winnipeg autumns.


Still feeling small as a child, looking up, up through the leaf canopies of the giant maples…


Native vine maples shot with red and yellow, contrasting with the dark green cedars and hemlocks, reminding me of long ago boxes of colourful wax crayons.

UPDATE October 30th: This is my submission for the next Festival of the Trees blog carnival. If you’d like to join the fun, do it right now!
