We felt the effects of Hurricans Sandy on Monday night and into Tuesday - mostly steady high winds with huge gusts.  The wind was from the NE, and it produced whitecaps on the lake, which rarely occurs with winds from that direction.  We lost 16 trees from the strong winds.

This is the view of the Pickeral River, near the French River and Highway 69, from the fishing camp we stayed at last week.

A pretty typical fall scene around our place.

Sunny and I went on a short cruise on the Fortuitous this afternoon between the bouts of monsoon rain we've been having lately.  The colour of the leaves have passed their peak, but the birch, poplar and oak trees here on the section of land between Viceroy Road and West Peninsula Road still looks fabulous.

Late summer/early autumn flowers.

Saturday, October 13, 2012

There are not many green ferns left in the bush now.  They are mostly done in by the colder fall weather.

I love the fall colours, but I think it's too bad they herald the winter.

I took this photo of a maple tree at our college last week.  Since then, with the cold, rainy, windy weather, it is now barenaked.

We were in London on Saturday to see the Neil Young & Crazy Horse concert.  My iPhone camera was the only camera at hand.  The quality of this photo is in inverse proportion to the quality of the concert - it was Fabulous!

On the south side of the Niagara Escarpment in central Southern Ontario in farming country is a small town called Monkton.  This is an old "feed" depot, which has seen better days, that somewhat resembles an old train station.

This oak tree stands at the top of our driveway.  It's a fabulous tree.  On Sat. I took down a 45 foot poplar tree that grew up beside the oak, inside its branches actually, and now the oak has its own space and room to spread out.  Currently, it spans out over 3/4 of the road our driveway opens on to.

Burying the water line to 18-24 inches instead of its original 4-6 inch depth - whew!
