Best fall color - more trees and shrubs

Although there are still golfers playing at the course across the road from us, Toby and I have been able to start having morning walks there. If we get there early enough, we done before there's any danger of balls hitting us. The course has some magnificant trees, such as the oak above.

The sugar maples have colored beautifully this year

double-file viburnum and cotoneaster

  4. The golfcourses are the best places for quiet walks early morning! Oh my you've had much more frost in your location of Canada! Here by Lake Ontario we've only had frosted roof tops...roses still blossoming!

  5. Just outstanding Yvonne! That last picture of the black gum looks like a mirrored image!! It looks like two gum trees and it doesnt help that the trees to the left are mirrored in the opposite direction!!
    That color is stunning!!
