Here are some more fall colours from around the Arboretum.
This is a hydrangea bush, at the end of its growing season.
There are a couple of pathways down from the high ground that meet here on the slope. One features a stone wall, the other uses steps and wood beams to create a pathway.
Down below, the pathways leading through here include one that passes by the Rideau Canal. Birds were out on the water when I took these shots, a good many ducks and Canada geese among them. The bridge is one that passes over a quiet creek feeding into the Canal.
