It's odd looking at pictures of grass when we're buried in snow.
These shots were taken in the arboretum in early November. The first is from the high ground overlooking Dow's Lake. Most of the fall colours were gone by this point, but not quite all of them.
On the way through to the university, there's an offshoot creek that feeds into the Rideau Canal. It's crossed by two pedestrian bridges. This is the newest of them.
Among the many varieties of trees here are ones that have berries late into the season, such as these red ones.
Over at Hartwell Locks, here we have the setup for the winter. The water is drained out from the upper locks, aside from a small stream from beyond the locks.
And this boat is drydocked in one of these empty locks for the winter. Come April, it'll be time to get it floating for another season.
Heads up: I've got something a bit off the wall and racy for tomorrow. Those of a Puritan bent or members of the Sisters Of Little Or No Mercy might want to skip to Friday.
