Here we are. Last day of August. Days are getting shorter. Fall colours are starting to show themselves. It won't be long til we see such lovely sights as these.
The top shot is the street close by my place. The bottom is from the library at Carleton, overlooking the Canal on the other side of the treeline.
I couldn't resist. Incidentally, I can practically hear a number of people howling my name in outrage when they see this; no doubt they'll be contemplating sending Fluffy Destroyer of Worlds after me.
You had me there for a moment, William.ReplyDelete
Regret that I shall not see such loveliness; and yet a relief that I shall not see, feel, slip, fall, curse in such loveliness! [I vaguely remember scraping hard ice from my windscreen before dawn in order to drive to work on glazed roads. . . . good times!ReplyDelete
ALOHA from Honolulu

William there is still a couple of great months ahead. The fall colours will be out soon.ReplyDelete
This is very interesting: can you really send Fluffy after someone?ReplyDelete
Oh no! Not yet, please! There are still beautiful colours of autumn to enjoy.ReplyDelete
The snow comes early to Canada, to Spain takes longer.ReplyDelete
ENJOY the autumn first, before you put your skis on:)ReplyDelete
don't be mad at me but I kind of hate you for these pictures…ReplyDelete
No snow and ice for me at the moment, William, we are heading for a nice and warm week. I hope for some Indian summer in which we can feel some sun on our skin again after all the rain we've had recently.ReplyDelete
nice cool-down for me! :)ReplyDelete
Well I wouldn't be surprised if we get snow next week considering the temps that have been forecasted. I'm ready for autumn but the thing is, we haven't had spring or summer...ReplyDelete
I don't mind seeing pictures like that when it's so very hot out. It's funny how just looking at snow can make you feel cooler.ReplyDelete
I think you might be the only person I can think of who actually looks forward to being buried in snow.ReplyDelete
No howling here but you can keep your snow. Wonderful photo ops. We don't get much snow so when we do we revel in it until it turns to slush and mush which it does here because it doesn't freeze. Oh well!!ReplyDelete
I do love the autumn and winter, and I love these snow scenes!ReplyDelete
@Revrunner: I couldn't help it!ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: around your parts, the only snow that falls is on the volcano tops.
@Andy: I saw some fall colours already a couple of days ago.
@VP: if I could. I'd send Fluffy after a certain idiot ex-brother-in-law of mine.
@Zosia: I do look forward to fhe fall colours, but I'm anticipating winter even more!
@Tomas: we do get a proper winter here.
@Gunn: I'm looking forward to some cross country skiing.
@Jane and Chris: I thought you'd say that!
@Hilary: I anticipated that might be possible!ReplyDelete
@Jan: we've had our share of rain too... it hasn't been a dry summer.
@Tex: I thought some people might enjoy it if they were dealing with heat waves.
@Ciel: we have yet to see a real heatwave.
@Judy: it does have that effect.
@Sharon: with great pleasure too!
@MB: our snow here pretty much stays through the winter.
@Linda: thank you!
I love it. Great photos, and I'm ready.ReplyDelete
Oh, go away!!!ReplyDelete
I just spoke with Fluffy. He offered to do you for free.ReplyDelete
winter can be pleasant and peaceful then again it can be a pain in the butt :)ReplyDelete
Snow will come. But not in Florida.ReplyDelete
I clicked on the fluffy link and laughed out loud. Thanks for that William, I have seen this little darling before but never get tired of that sweet, funny little face. Love the snow photos but I am looking forward to Autumn first :)ReplyDelete
Lovely pix...so long as the snow stays up in your neck of the woods!ReplyDelete
@Whisk: I'm waiting for the mighty Snow Demons to rise again.ReplyDelete
@Jack: but winter's a good thing!
@Norma: I'm in so much trouble!
@Bill: ah but I love it!
@Shelly: snow in Florida would be problematic.
@Denise: I can't recall the first time I saw Fluffy, but that face is just perfect.
@Cheryl: I hope we get lots!
I don't want to think about it! ;-)ReplyDelete
thanks for visiting my blog :)ReplyDelete
Ive never been in snow like that. Stay warm :)
Aaack! Aren't you rushing things a bit. We are still in the high 90s so these pictures seem pretty far fetched.ReplyDelete
I love winter!Delete
You love that snow, don't you!ReplyDelete
I don't need to reminded of this yet!!! Can't we see some pretty fall trees first? ;-)ReplyDelete
Ah, winter can't come soon enough.Delete
To my surprise, the beach is as crowded today as it was in August. I was so disappointed I came back home.ReplyDelete
I'm not a beach person.Delete
You won't hear me complaining William, j'adore your winter scenes!ReplyDelete
I adore the changing season. I'm grateful not to be doing yard duty in -40 any more.ReplyDelete
