Early Autumn

Sorry about the late posting – this one from October escaped!

The climate around Toronto seems to move in plateaux so that you have spells of warm weather and then, suddenly it’s cool outside. October is the month with the steepest temperature decline and we’re beginning to feel it. Yesterday was very cool and I took advantage of the leaves at their peak. Frost has nipped the park in the last two nights and many leaves will fall as a result.

The newer tree plantings are showing nice colour.

Much of the park’s older trees are non-native such as Norway Maple. These trees at best turn yellow rather than the crimson of sumac or sugar maples. As the newer native plantings grow, Raymore’s colours will become more vivid.

Whoever keeps blocking the fish ladder with various sizes of lumber are completely ignoring the ‘no trespassing’ signs helpfully placed by the TRCA.

A nice backdrop to the southernmost baseball diamond. This is where the new leash free zone is planned.

    Very refreshing to see these lovely autumn colours during this dreary December (not that I’m complaining about the warm weather TOO much).
