Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Our Colourful World in the Fall

Last week the forecast was for much colder weather with the possibility of snow. So far we have been very lucky and did not have any frost. I still have lettuce and red beets growing in the garden, which is highly unusual for our region in late October. Prompted by the wintery forecast my wife and I went for a walk and captured the beautiful autumn atmosphere of the Arrow Lakes. Enjoy.

    I love autumn pictures, and these are a treat. Were the oaks unusually red this year? It seemed that way, or maybe I just haven’t noticed them properly before now.

      Robert, the maple and oak trees usually show a lot more colour but this year we did not have many days of frost yet, which bring out the autumn colours.

    That one rosebush is sprouting a new leaf, just like mine, because of the mild weather. I love those red autumn leaves and the hips.
    The bees and bumblebees will soon withdraw I guess. By the way, we had hardly any moskitos and wasps this year, which was strange. Did you observe similar in Canada?

      Now that you mention the wasps and mosquitoes, I must agree with your observations that they have been noticeable through their absence. Have a great day, Birgit!

    I especially like the photo of the rose hips and white berries. What are those white ones? I know I’ve seen them before, but I can’t remember their name. Are they snowberries?

      You guessed it, these are snowberries. They grow here abundantly.

      You guessed correctly, Arv! It is a maple leaf, one of the natural things symbolizing Canada.

    Happy autumn. That’s a good picture of the thorny stem with drops clinging to the underside.
