The Splendour of Autumn at Our Doorstep

Autumn in its full glory is here! The apple festivals have arrived. Pumpkin patches have opened. Our grey residential streets have suddenly disappeared under a brilliant golden blanket of leaves. It's my favourite season. We took time to play in it this morning-- examining the leaves, shuffling in it, looking at bugs--dead or alive, running for balls through the leaves, and even posing in it as a boarder with some serious attitude.

You look so rad D! Just no real aerial tricks yet please. Mom will have to ask you to abort any inkling of those ideas stirring in your head.

wow, those are the photos I meant to take, when I got around to it, the leaves were already fallen off the trees! Well, I will have to wait for spring and the cherry blossoms I guess. Hope you are doing well!

I love those photos! I was thinking to myself, most of the time kids love to play in the fallen leaves, but here, usually they're just a soggy mess. Looks like you caught a beautiful dry day!

Faye: Why did it take me so long to realize what a talented neighbour I have! Not sure how you manage it all, being a mother, wife, worker, photographer, knitter, etc., but you do. Love the photo of Jade and Dillon. Thanks, Anita
