  14. @Linda: thanks. I had it yesterday... and at a point where it was repeatedly telling me I was wrong while I know I was right. Extremely frustrating to have to go ten times through the bloody photo identification thing when you know you're right every single time. If I had a Google techie in front of me last evening, I would have hit him.

    @Cloudia: it is!

    @Tex: thanks!

    @Denise: I certainly thought so!

    @Nancy: thank you.

    @Stuart: and it's a lot of work!

    @Karl: thank you!

  15. @Merisi: it really is.

    @Grace: at eighty acres of land, it does require help!

    @Tomas: thank you!

    @EG: it snowed here overnight, and is still snowing! I did photograph something, but I might just put that over at my Facebook page.

    @Norma: I've got them at least until the end of the month.

    @Sharon: thank you!

    @Beth: I smiled when I looked out the windows this morning and saw snow!

  16. Your entire city is so lush with beautiful flora. I heard you got snow last night or yesterday. Some of those leaves will probably disappear soon.

  17. A nice contrast between the green and the autumnal leaves, complemented with the lovely colors of the flowers!

  18. beautiful

  19. We'd had some roses and dandelions blooming all over the place here up until about five days ago when it got really cold....all gone... Enjoy them while you can!

  20. I think I'm going to apply for the GG job as the digs are awesome! I wonder what the pay is. You have some very warm fall shots.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Really special. Our leave are almost gone. I like that blue sky of yours too. It looks so clear.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love that 2nd last shot, William! What a lovely place that is. And now the Trudeau kids will be playing there.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Such gorgeous color. Lucky kids who will get to enjoy this park! ;-)

  24. Beautiful William. We've had very late blooming roses this year, right into November but it is now cold and wet...

    ReplyDelete
  25. The colouring trees make a great combination with the blue skies!

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Lowell: oh, these leaves are gone by now. I took these shots in October. Yes, we did get snow overnight!

    @VP: thank you!

    @Tammie: things look quite different here today. I took a couple of shots today... might post them at Facebook and create some kind of link in tomorrow's post.

    @Pat: it looks more like winter here now.

    @Red: it would be quite a job, with perks!

    @Lauren: ours are gone now.

    @RedPat: they've got a lot of lawn to wander around in!

    @Halcyon: a lot of the property's open to the public. One does see kids running around in summer particularly.

    @Ciel: we had some late blooming flowers, but that's done now.

    @Marleen: I thought so too!

  27. Beautiful colors! I'm visiting my family further south and it's just now getting to be the color change in the leaves. It's nice to enjoy again (and avoid the bitter cold of home!).

  30. Gorgeous William! I can never get enough of fall colors.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Any more green grass and I'll be tempted to go get a set of clubs. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Meradeth: I'd much rather have the cold!

    @Gracita: thank you!

    @Geoff: it is, at nearly eighty acres.

    @Lois: me too.

    @Revrunner: there's an idea!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Those are none too shabby grounds! I especially like that fountain.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Beautiful! Wouldn't you love to live on grounds like these!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. The season is so short. Good to see the colours again!
