Lanark County Colours

Today I spent part of the day driving around Lanark County, where I live, and into North Frontenac County, here in Ontario. This year’s show of fall colours has been nothing short of spectacular. Because of our drought this summer, it was predicted that the fall colours would be far more muted than usual. In fact, this fall has been just the opposite, with some of the most vibrant colours in years!

Nothing soothes the soul more than driving along a quiet country road, soaking in the vibrant colours of fall. Here are some photos from today’s outing.

Wishing all of you here in Canada, a Happy Thanksgiving. Take a moment to reflect on the things you are grateful for, especially the people you love most. And cherish every moment with them.

    Reminds me so much of our trip to Nova Scotia Shelley……..just beautiful. Hope you had a lovely holiday weekend.

    • Hi Anne,
      Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you had the chance to experience the fall colours when you were in Nova Scotia. I’m hoping that in the next few years I’ll get a fall colours photo workshop up and running.

      Do your daughter and son-in-law still celebrate Thanksgiving there in New Zealand?

      Take care and say hi to Doug for me.

      hugs,

      Shell
