A Walk in the Park

Saturday is my busy with errands day, shopping for groceries and other necessities, with a can't be missed visit to the library to round things out.  The day was so beautiful -  lovely, warm temperatures  by midday, with leaves taking on their autumn finery.  Knowing just how quickly those leaves fall, I headed out with my camera just before sunset, for a walk in the park.

All in a week

Happily, the amazing snowfall that surprised us right out of warm, lovely weather a week ago finally melted off over the weekend.  That storm knocked out our power along with over 50,000 other residents last Wednesday and assaulted nearly every deciduous tree in the city.  Seriously.  You would not believe the number of branches that were split from trees due to the weight of all that snow.  Some trees were literally broken to pieces and will have to be cut down.  So sad.  A week later, our weather has swung back up into the low 20s and if it wasn't for all the damage to the trees, I would think last week's heavy snow fall and freezing temps were a bad dream!
 
Fall has returned and I'm happy to mark it with pulling out a few autumn coloured fabrics to work with.

The difference a day can make

Yesterday, we left the city for a beautiful afternoon of hiking in the woods.
