Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

October Flowers in our Yard

A very late Spring with a lot of cool and rainy weeks had caused nature to get a slow start. Consequently, our fruit trees blossomed four weeks late. There are still Grafenstein and Red Delicious apples that need to be picked, almost an entire month behind schedule. It is also very unusual in our region not to have experienced any frost during the night so late in the season. Thus, being such a special fall, I decided to focus on the many flowers still blooming in our yard. I know that Luda, a blogging friend living in Florida, will be smiling about my enthusiasm coming from the northern climes. Down there seem to be flowers all year round. But all those who have already struggled with snow on the mountain passes will be amazed at mother nature’s beauty down in the Arrow Lakes valley. Please excuse me for breaking my five-photo-rule. Enjoy.
