Changing Seasons And Imminent Departures



Along the streets of the Glebe, there are bright colours to be found amid the trees.


Over at Dow's Lake, birds might still be found. We do tend to see ducks stay over the winter- not all of the ones that are here during the summer, but some will spend the winter near places on the Rideau River that don't ice over. Canada Geese, on the other hand, such as the one on the left, will soon be on their way. Assuming they haven't already gone. This one might just be stopping in on the way from further north.

And they call them Canada Geese. First sign of cold weather, the cranky cowards are bolting south for the winter...

    1. I think the original meaning of glebe had something to do with a church, with the land surrounding it. There are several churches in that neighbourhood to which the reference could stand for.

  6. Just so you know, the Canada geese overwinter here in Victoria. So at least some of them stay in Canada. ;0)

  7. Beautiful colors!

    Don't you pick on those poor geese! Many of them spend their winters with us. Collin and I feed them....

    1. I wonder if they're the ones who stay here at the lake in the summer...

  8. Lovely colors! We have Canada Geese in Virginia. Some of them fly south but a few stay all winter, especially the ones that have formed family units with the grey geese that live on our pong.

    1. I can see that, and the climate's probably more agreeable than here.
